"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer."
John F. Kennedy
My love for education became part of my foundation at an early age. I was about 12 years old when my Mother gave me some important lessons to live by, she said “There are two things no one can ever take away from you: 1.Your name and 2. Your education."
I became a lifelong learner. Taking college classes one at a time, working full time, being a wife and mother wearing many hats like most do today, I earned what I call a “Blue Collar” MBA from Plymouth State University in 2006 taking one class at a time without student loans.
My career path took me into business, working for a quick service restaurant chain. Working my way through management into upper management in the Philadelphia area, was responsible for operations throughout Philadelphia and Bucks County.
During this career, I worked with teens daily. As the years passed by the teens were less and less prepared for a work environment. Filling out the job application, being on time, understanding the importance of following directions became lessons that needed to be taught on the job.
In 2003 I married Bill Demers. Together we have three sons and five wonderful grandchildren. We purchased our Palm Coast home in 2005. Currently I hold a Fl 2-15 insurance license and work as an independent life insurance and Medicare supplement agent.
