As a Western Governors University graduate, I am interested in seeking an opportunity to help other WGU students be successful. Since graduating from WGU in July of 2006, I have enjoyed a fabulous teaching career in elementary education. This work experience, combined with being an alumni of WGU and past organizational experience in event planning places me as an ideal candidate to foster the growth of WGU, and its students.
Director of Operations
As the Director of Operations at this nationwide destination services company, superior communication and organizational skills were of the utmost importance. This position was responsible for directing a staff of over 50 employees, as we annually serviced 300 groups visiting Las Vegas from around the globe.
Aug 2006 - Present
Learning Services Teacher
As the Learning Services Teacher for second and third grade students, I partner with six teachers to provide daily differentiated instruction to approximately 110 students. Through the use of cross class pre-assessment across subjects, data is collected to provide student-centered learning opportunities. Custom curricular experiences are generated and delivered through small group instruction.
Master of Arts
Western Governors University
My experience as a WGU alumni uniquely qualifies me to aid current students. This competency based online university placed me in a position to begin my teaching career in a well established independent school. From navigating in Taskstream, to discussing my action plan with a mentor, having experienced the university from the students' perspective will benefit current students as they make their way through the WGU experience.
