I earned a BA from the University of Wisconsin - Madison for International Relations & German Area Studies in 1991 and I earned a BS from Kennesaw State University for Secondary Social Studies Education in 2000. Over the past 25 years I have worked in both the worlds of business and education. As a teacher in the Atlanta area I received the MLK Award (faculty award voted on by student body) it demonstrates my passion for connecting with students. My educational philosophy, regardless of subject or age group, is that motivation is the number one indicator of academic success - it is not enough to just slog through assignments/tasks students need to buy in to their education. By empowering my students through a balance of helping and letting them help each other there was demonstrated success in the form of higher test scores (in comparison with the rest of the social studies department), for both end of course and the AP exams. In addition to my strengths having been a teacher, I am very well traveled having worked and studied overseas. I've been to 5 continents and 44 states which has shaped my overall education along with stressing the importance of an open mind. My travels suited me well, as I have worked with students from many different backgrounds both academically and culturally. I moved to Colorado 8 years ago as I love the mountains - I am an avid distance runner and love skiing - I find this state's natural beauty to be absolutely enchanting.
