I am so happy to be part of Seneca Ridge Middle School team as the Business Education teacher for keyboarding. I graduated from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, VA where I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Business Administration, with minors in Economics and Computer Information Systems. I earned my Masters in Business Administration from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I also attended Shenandoah University and earned my Virginia State Teaching Licensure with endorsements in Business Education and Marketing. I have been teaching for the past eight years.
Prior to teaching, I worked as an Information Technology (IT) systems engineer, consultant, developer, manager, and director for various consulting and telecommunications companies in northern Virginia and abroad (Malaysia, Philippines, Korea, Chile, and Canada). After sixteen years in IT, I switched careers to teaching and have enjoyed teaching in private schools, Belmont Ridge, Trailside, and now Seneca! I still keep active in the IT world by consulting and also am an Adjunct Professor for the Kogod School of Business at American Univerisity in Washington, DC.
My goal in education is to have all of my students learn how to type proficiently while also learning many aspects of the business world. I want my students to excel at the life skills of communication skills, people skills, and networking skills. My students enjoy an innovative and enthusiastic class where learning is challenging and fun! Our OTTW projects will be interviewing guest speakers and writing letters (and sending them) to companies/organizations within the US.
