According to my students, I torture young people for a living during the week. My official job description or title however is "High School Math Teacher".

Before that I was an engineer who ran manufacturing companies. I left that, took a few years off, and now I teach. I enjoy it and love the hours.

I got a Diploma to be a Techinician in eletronics but specialised in computer and web server. But The work around town wasn't good at all, it was better to work In Mc'Do . So I became a Papermaker for our so famous Resolute forestries products. :cry: I work there since 10 years now and not the best 10 years of my short 30 years of life.. But as we all say '' At Least I work '' !!

Do you specialize in a particular area? Some of the Wildlife Biologists I work with seem to specialize or at least excel on a certain aspect of their job. For example one of the Biologists really likes working with waterfowl habitat while another specializes in whitetail diseases. I so a lot of work with wetlands. Being located near the Great Lakes I like to work on spawning habitat of warm water species particularly northern pike.

I'm another desk jockey. I work for the big B as an "Airworthiness and Certification engineer". Basically I chat on the phone, play on a computer and send a bunch of email to the FAA to keep airliners in the air safely and legally. Lately, i spend a lot of time making sure people dont get out of line on their computer stuff. So I guess I'm not unlike a forum moderator. It has had some intense and fascinating times, but overwelmingly it has become boring. I guess thats good for the flying public, so you guys should be happy I'm bored :D .
My wife is another engineer. As we near retirement, I want to do what DonF does more and more.

What is a network marketer and what do you do?


I work as an insurance adjuster - best part is I work from home. Though Im pretty much maxed out in this career so want to move on to something else. Preferably real estate investment. Though saving $$ is the hard part. Have one rental but just found out having a child in May so thinking my hopes of buying another property in the next year or two got dashed and put on the back burner.

I think when I retire I would like to move to the upper midwest or southeast where fish are for catching and eating not just for protecting.
