My road in life has been direct.
I made education a priority because my mother was a foster youth and my father couldn't read.

I taught High School English for 8 years.
Then I decided that I wanted to make different kinds of changes and became an administrator.

Day to Day

A great day at work consists of classes filled with students, teachers engaging students, and the tangible gratitude from our students who appreciate getting a second chance. We are a very small school with approximately 90 students ages 18 to 25 who come to us voluntarily because they have had a taste of the real world and realize that they must finish their education to get ahead. All of our students have a story of their own.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Be sure that you are getting into education for the right reasons. Don't do it as a back up plan. Don't do it because you are afraid to venture outside of the familiar. Do it to make a difference. Do it to make a big difference.
