St. Louis, MO
I have worked in several different occupational fields throughout my career and have enjoyed them all! My teaching experience started as part of my undergraduate degree at Principia College. As part of my undergraduate degree, I student-taught Early Childhood Education at a vocational high school in Denver. I loved working with the students and enjoyed seeing the students learn the skills of managing a preschool.
After graduation, I spent many years as a technical trainer, which allowed me to travel the world teaching people how to use computer systems. I really got to understand the unique ways in which people of different cultures and backgrounds learned the best. I realized that the traditional classroom atmosphere was not always the most productive learning method.
After moving to Buena Vista, I spent several years working at The Link School as the Finance Manager. I also got the opportunity to teach math to the amazing students there. In 2017, I accepted a job as a Business Professor at Principia College, so my family and I packed up our home in Colorado and moved to St. Louis.
I love working as a board member for The Link School because it allows me to stay connected to the students and staff on a regular basis.
