I was born to be an educator. I first became enamored of the career when I read Little House on the Prairie. I wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder. I used my mother's old textbooks to create lesson plans for my dolls and stuffed animals. I gave lectures, homework and graded their assignments. I hand wrote report cards for each student. When I was in high school, my mom died and it was my speech teacher that made sure I graduated and got into a good college. I was taken off track by the promise of my ability to be a lawyer, and then I realized that wasn't what I wanted to do and I was in the wrong college. It took me 20 years to wind my way back to that original dream. Today, I honor my speech teacher and my younger self by helping students of all ages reach their academic goals and their life goals.
I hold a Doctorate of Management, an International Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis on supply chain and logistics and a Bachelor of Science in Political Science. I have taught students from age 4 to age 60. I have taught students from five of the seven continents and taught in Mexico and China. I am certified in English 7-12, with the English as a Second Language certification. I have been teaching since 2006 in both college and K-12. As a college professor, I taught management, logistics, international business, business, marketing, entrepreneurship, organizational design and change, English and algebra. My students have completed projects that saved over $250,000 for businesses and have started six new businesses in under three months.
I am excited to spend all of my time working in the one on one environment. I love to be a coach, mentor, and teacher all at the same time. I enjoy identifying your learning style, the prior knowledge that allows you to scaffold to higher academic success. I also think that we should have fun. I enjoy talking about music, TV, movies, pets, children and grandchildren. I believe that if you are having fun, you will be more engaged with the material and will retain more of the information.
I have extensive experience working with neurodivergent students and have many skills to help you succeed in your way, not pushing you to the "normal" way of doing things. I look forward to working with students that are interested in learning and who will advocate for what they need. We will be partners in your education and we will achieve your goals, both academic and personal.
