Passion, I have a passion for learning and for helping others find their success. I have more than 16 years’ experience in education ranging from K-12 teaching and administration, as well as university teaching and program management at Central Washington University.
Not only do I have teaching experience, but I also have industry-level experience, working in both for-profit and not-for-profit accounting. Having served as an administrator and manager within the education field provides me with a rich background in leadership, learning, managing both self and others, and an understanding of the overall workplace environment.
My educational philosophy is to find relevancy to the workplace and workplace situations that provide thoughtful and thought-provoking scenarios for students. I believe that everyone has something to learn and that it is my job as the instructor to be as clear as possible and provide opportunity for student growth. As an online learner and instructor, I believe strongly in the need for clear direction and intention. It is my goal to set up a challenging, caring, and supportive environment for learners so that they grow to their potential. I am committed to helping others find their success.
Personally, I love to travel, read, and spend time with family and friends. Every day is a new experience and new opportunity. Most recently, I am starting to look for fun runs or as one of my close friends says, wogging (somewhere between walking and jogging) that I can participate in around the Puget Sound area. My first major 5k is coming up in May – the Color Run.
Find your passion, whatever it is, be the best you can be at it, learn all you can, go above the basics, and really dig in and learn. It is through this passion that you will find your future. Your future is here, believe in it and follow it.
