When I graduate college I will have at least a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education.

I am an experienced sales manager with strong skills in marketing strategies and customer relations and retention. I just recently moved to Ottawa and am looking for a summer position as a server or banquet server for a hotel or conference center. I feel like I'm having trouble because of my experience running a business for ADT security and as well as my own business that every time i apply for a server job i'm too over qualified and I guess they think I'm not serious or had a nervous breakdown because I went from a salaried position as a sales manager to a server. The truth is I have a 3 yr old girl and a baby boy due next month so I want to spend more time at home and we are financially secure enough that I can still support my family. How can I convey This to a potential employer so they will take me seriously and give me a chance at a server position. Because of my age and experience I know I would bring professionalism to the establishment. I am open to any ideas or suggestions that could help me out. Thanks. :-)

Context: I have a resume designed to focus on my customer relations and sales experience. I am clean shaven and at 36 I'm still high energy, focused and professional. I have been applying for jobs and have had two interviews that i felt went very well. I left both thinking I got the job but never received a call back and when I followed up they both told me they were still interviewing. I have never had a problem getting the job I want but this is tough..

I would like to become an elementary school teacher, probably teaching pre-k through 4th grade. I have done lots of research and I am great with kids already.

Context: I have gone over a four-year plan for high school and most of my classes will definitely get me there. I also plan to try to get in some psychology, that might help me understand how people, including the little ones, think and their behavior better.
