Leslie McFadden

For over two decades, I have been a dedicated educator in the public school system. When my husband got sick, and the Delaware school system became so convoluted and flawed, I resigned to seek a change in my career. Unfortunately with this economy, I haven't been able to secure that right job -- so it's been a struggle. Thankfully I have no children, so my husband Jack my self hang on as best we can. I still act and sing when the opportunity arises, and I am attempting to establish my very own tutoring company: A+ Above and Beyond Tutoring Services. I have also edited novel manuscripts on the side.
