👋 Hi! I'm Dr. Emberton and it is super nice to meet you on Outschool! I've been a public school teacher for ten years and worked in the private business sector for ten years before my time in the classroom. Let me tell you a little more about this opportunity.

Sharing these skills at every moment is my calling!...
