A rich life flows with continual learning; adapting; growth; change! Every day we are changing! The point is to enjoy the journey, and the enjoyment is a choice.
With my dynamic and award-winning educational experience throughout my school years and college at Texas A&M University-Texarkana and several other organizations of higher learning, plus all of the leadership roles I held in both, I was privileged to learn how to set and accomplish high goals. This has taught me well how to study for and master many types of exams, from PRAXIS to FORT, ACT, and more.
With my 30+ years of experience in supervision, sales, customer service, and other business, as well as purposeful lifelong learning to accomplish many goals and gain many skills, in addition to educating people from 1-85 (and perhaps even more mature), both in public and private schools, community nonprofits, private lessons, and online, I have shared secrets of success in multiple subjects. From study skills to safety, service, and sales; from piano to poetry; from health to helping; from business writing to believing in higher life; from communicating orally, in writing, and dance, to creative writing; to elementary school subjects (including English and math); to ESL (my most recent certification, with my TESOL from Global English), I have an extensive knowledge of the learning process, a love for all people, and an ability to connect well with my students. I find sublime pleasure in helping guide and inspire my dear students to discover the develop the treasures within themselves.
I highly enjoy teaching through my writing as well. I have self-published many books and have many more in process. I also have published over 500 articles online and in print through the years to inspire, encourage, and motivate others to a new level of living. In addition, I have created and taught courses, including a parenting course for unwed mothers which I taught for 6 weeks at a local crisis pregnancy center, and also a college course on writing and marketing poetry. When I worked as a certified professional secretary at a large utility company, I was commissioned by the general manager to create an operations manual for the transportation department and to train the new supervisor and other personnel with it. I have also served as webmaster for four inspirational websites through the years, and provided a place for others to publish their writing.
With the right vision, energy, determination, and teacher, any student can exceed their goals and find great reward in the process! I am here to help my students do both!
