It has been my pleasure to serve private and public sector schools for the over 14 years. In K-8 I served as an elective, resource and computer education teacher. In 6-8 I spent 7 years as a middle grades business teacher. I moved to an inner city school to teach Business and Marketing on a high school level after completing and earning both my National Boards/Masters in Curriculum & Instruction.
My style of teaching focuses on facilitation of lessons, uses of innovative technologies to increase active engagement and create rigor. Technology allows me to make lessons custom to each student I teach.
National Board Certification November 2009
Masters in Business & Marketing Curriculum and Instruction NC State University May 2008
Prior to teaching, I spent 5 years as a staffing agent and accountant. In this position my duties included training adult learners on software applications and improving their workforce marketability. In addition to serving Cumberland County schools as a teacher for 9 years, I served as an online and face-to-face teacher trainer in the area of technology. In the years as a professional development trainer I created professional development for the University of Las Vegas and CCS online continuing education.
