Following a twenty-year career in corporate training, I began teaching at the university level in 2014. I use innovative teaching practices, supported by information technology, to instruct students in computer software and business skills. I identify approaches of guiding students to recognize innovative and collaborative methods of using expertise, equipping them to solve problems and succeed in a knowledge-driven society. My professional experience has involved consulting and delivering training seminars for school districts in South Carolina and numerous organizations and corporations in the Southeast United States.
Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), a recognition awarded to capable experts demonstrating proven proficiency in technical training and Microsoft Office programs.
Realizing that individuals must keep up with technology and be willing to adapt and accept the changing workplace challenges, I encourage and motivate students to network and develop relationships with area political representatives and area businesses.
I was a North Greenville student, and my husband and I are thrilled that all four of our children were also students of NGU. We are proud of them and their accomplishments in completing their education. Because of our deep roots with the university, I was thrilled when the opportunity arose to teach in the Computer Science Department.
My Favorite Class to Teach: Teaching the Introduction to Information Technology course at North Greenville University has been my joy. I look forward to watching as students become enlightened and discover new ways to use technology. The coming years will surely add blessings to my life as I meet new students each year.
