My road in life took a while to figure out.
First I wanted to travel around the world as a travel agent.
Then I changed my major to education in the field of Family and Consumer Sciences.
Then I wanted to help people by becoming a nurse.
Then I finished my degree and acquired a job as a high school teacher.
Then I wanted to study nutrition for my sake.
Then, while working, I obtained a masters degree in the area of Special Education.



I get students ready for careers, college and / or independent living.

Career Roadmap

My work combines:
Philosophy & Religion
Teaching / Mentoring

Day to Day

I begin the day by checking email and making any necessary connections. After taking attendance, I facilitate instruction. During preparation periods, I make phone calls, write emails, read, plan and prepare for the next class. I teach 5 different courses each week. Two of the courses that I teach are college level. I interact with students on a personal and professional level throughout the day. At the end of the day, I do what is necessary to prepare for the next day / week / month / year.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Take courses in the area of Family and Consumer Sciences and psychology. Look for ways to help others and get involved in community service. Learn to write well, read often, and experiment at home after hands on activities taught in the classroom.
