Hello & Thank You for stopping by to learn more about me! My niche products bridge school to real life for the skills we all need to succeed. My career spans over 30 years in vocational education and private industry. My corporate assignments included: Instructional Design & Training Development for T-Mobile, Microsoft, FedEx; plus related freelance for a variety of other media companies. In education I was a Graphic Arts Instructor & Career Coach @ Bellevue College; and Business & Technology Teacher @ Bellevue High School, WA. Other life pursuits are reflected in my TpT store and on my website PattyAnn.net.
My communication style has always been direct common-sense dialogue, while using empathy to understand a person's learning goal. This is my emphasis as a teacher, particularly when connecting a student to the life skill-sets they seek.
The greatest compliment ever paid to me was by my doctorate student who told me I was her best teacher ever! Why? Because I taught her (not just) how to think, but alternate ways to think.
Degrees in Graphic Arts (BA); Adult Learning & Communication (MA); WA State Teaching Certification; Real Estate Certificate; + Always Earning Knowledge as Life Dictates!
