Writer, Editor, Proofreader, Administrative Assistant Kathleen Barron, Writing & Content
Kathleen V. Barron Professional Profile: High School English Teacher, Massage Therapist, Social Media Specialist, Writer/Editor, Caregiver, Entrepreneur, Patent-Holder, Coach, Tutor, DJ & MC, I’ve done it all! I like to contribute wherever I go! Experience: 2019 - 2020 ELA Teacher, Liberty High School I recently completed my second year of teaching in the Osceola School System, this past year at Liberty High, which was much closer to home. I taught ELA 1, both regular classes and honors classes. I deepened my knowledge of Microsoft Office, and worked with my students on Teams for the last three months of the school year. 2018 - 2019 ELA Teacher, Osceola High School I spent my first year of teaching at Osceola High School. I taught ELA 1 and 3, both regular classes and honors classes. I was very happy there and learned a lot every day. 6/2017 - 7/2018 Social Media Specialist and Online Newsletter Editor/Writer at Cypress Cove Resort in Kissimmee, FL For a little over a year, I produced all of the social media for Cypress Cove Resort. Please look at Cypress Cove’s Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest accounts from that time to see my work. All of the original memes (with the Cypress Cove logo) are created by me. I did all of the writing and much of the photography on social media. I had many other responsibilities at Cypress Cove as well, including producing and editing their online newsletter, maintaining their events pages, and updating Google calendar. 1999 - 2001 and 2016 - 2018 Substitute Teacher During these years, I substitute taught, first in Michigan, then in Florida. In the 2017-2018 school year, I had a 4 month long-term substitute assignment teaching 8th grade ELA at Horizon Middle School, which motivated me to become a full-time teacher. 1996 - present Massage Therapist/Bodyworker I’ve spent 24 years as a facilitator of healing, helping people to get out of pain, to increase their range of motion, and to feel better in and about their bodies. I fully believe that loving ourselves - and our bodies - is a big part of healing and living a healthy, happy, fulfilling life. Promoting positive body image and connection with the body has been a fundamental principle of mine in working with clients over the years. 1999 - 2009 Caregiver I fell into caregiving when one of my therapy clients started needing some help after her husband passed away. I also cared for my mother during the last four years of her life. I became very adept with wheelchairs, scooters and all aspects of dealing with people with serious illness and increasing levels of physical disabilities and pain, as well as helping them to cope with the emotional toll that took on them. 1998 - 2001 Field Hockey Coach In 1998, I was asked by a friend to start the public school field hockey program in Grosse Pointe, MI. I coached both the Varsity and JV start-up teams for all of the Grosse Pointes for two years, coaching 60 girls at a time. After two years, the program had become strong enough for the two high schools to split - and I coached the Grosse Pointe North teams for another two years until they were able to recruit some new coaches. Let me just say that anyone who can manage 60 high school girls at once, encourage cooperation and team bonding, and deal with the parents on top of it - can manage just about anything! 1989 - 1997 Owner/Manager of Health Way Natural Food Store in Lakeland, FL I opened the store myself, did all of the ordering, all of the bookkeeping, met regularly with the sales reps of various companies, and managed all aspects of the business in addition to handling most of the customer service. I did have several employees over the years, so I do have personnel management skills as well.

Sydney Sullivan
BASIC
United States, Portland
Academic Writer and Researcher Sydney Sullivan, Writing & Content
My name is Sydney Sullivan and I have a great interest in your recently advertised position. I graduated with my Masters in English Literature from the University of Arizona and have been accepted into a fully-funded PhD in Education program at the University of California, Davis where I will be attending and teaching classes for the next five years. My research in Education concerns first-year college students and how to better incorporate well-being and mental health practices into writing curricula. I am interested in how digital rhetoric—such as how students communicate through social media—affect their ability to connect with people on an interpersonal level, and how we may develop conversations in the classroom that further interest students in the rhetorics of their digital lives. In two years of teaching, and six years of being a student, I have found college to be a place where many students come not only to become educated, but to learn more about themselves. I am interested in adding to conversations on social justice and digital rhetorics by helping students cultivate and participate in conversations about digital rhetoric’s place in their lives through pedagogy centered around well-being. I understand well-being as a state of mind in which we are aware, engaged, and seeking meaning in the world around us. Yet stereotypical ideas of technology seem to represent the opposite of these well-being practices: students are “disengaged” when they are on their phones, or “unaware” of others around them. My question is not, how do we get rid of technology, but rather, how can technology inculcate well-being in college spaces? I found this position extremely fitting given my background in writing and literacy. A job with a focus such as this gives me confidence that I will be in a position I am passionate about, which I hope will allow me to be a productive employee.
