With over 20 years’ experience in education, I have been a Regular Part-time English Instructor with BC3 since Fall 2003. Prior to joining the faculty at BC3, I taught at Moniteau Jr./Sr. High School. My career of choice has always been teaching. I find helping others succeed in learning a new skill very rewarding, which has translated into a very fulfilling career for me.
I earned my B.A. in Literature and English Secondary Education from Grove City College. While still teaching at Moniteau Jr./Sr. High School, I earned my M.S. in Instructional Leadership from Robert Morris University. These combined experiences have helped me to better relate to some of the challenges BC3’s students face as they juggle a career and family while trying to further their education. This has also been the foundation for developing my educational philosophy. I believe that everyone learns in a variety of styles; therefore, I design my courses to reflect this belief. Written and oral communication is the cornerstone of our society. By teaching students using a variety of instructional methods to have confidence in themselves while improving their communication skills, I am helping them to develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
Personally, I lead a very active life style with two sons and a husband. We are very involved in our community, church, and school activities. I strive to do my best in all aspects of my life, and I hope this attitude shines through to my students at BC3.
