2005 - 2022
I have dedicated 14 years of my life to education, spending time in various roles and with innumerable responsibilities. My learners have been adults, teens, and children. With each demographic comes unique challenges and needs. I have adapted my own learning style to meet my learners' needs which requires me to be a continuous learner myself.
One daily, weekly, quarterly, and yearly responsibility is to develop engaging lessons based on a specific goal. I identify the learners' needs, choose engaging instructional activities, and ensure the lessons developed are effective. The learning experiences developed are matched to the age, setting, and desired outcome.
As a leader in my organization, I have worked closely with key stakeholders to implement policies and goals. A passion for learning, leading, and teaching was required to motivate all involved. A positive attitude, clear communication skills, and active listening all attributed to my success as a leader.
Over half of my career has been spent mentoring adults in their new roles. Sharing my experiences, techniques, and knowledge with others brings me joy and satisfaction. My support helps others succeed in their responsibilities.
