Georgene Wade

I was born in Ironwood, Michigan and grew up in Texas and Tennessee. I earned a BA in French from Michigan State University and a MS and Ed.D. from the University of Tennessee. I taught elementary and secondary school for fifteen years and was the head of three private schools in the United States and Saudi Arabia. I served as Director of Curriculum at the International School in Manila, and have owned a travel agency, a real estate agency, and a commercial fishing business. I was also a stockbroker with Merrill Lynch. Married to a Scottish executive who romanced me in Saudi Arabia, I now live in Florida. I have a son, a lovely daughter-in-law and a grandson living in London.
