Welcome to Marketing!
As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, I'm excited about beginning my twenty-first year at ACTC. I have both a bachelor's degree (1992) and a master’s degree (1994) in business from Clemson University as well as a master’s degree in education (2009) from Furman University. I'm currently pursuing a Master of Science in Instructional Design and Learning Technology from Anderson University. Can you tell I'm a lifelong learner? Teaching is a second career for me as I worked in business and industry for ten years prior to teaching.
I believe students learn best by "doing." I love taking a seemingly "boring" set of standards and designing creative hands-on, real-world learning experiences that engage and motivate students to build in-demand business and marketing skills. All of my classes are project-based with a strong emphasis on the development of both the hard skills and soft skills students need for success in college and careers. Students take an active role in learning and demonstrate their mastery of course competencies through performance tasks, projects, simulations, and presentations (rather than tests). When possible, I try to give students voice and choice in many of their projects. Generally, students will not be assigned homework. Final exams have been replaced by either printed or digital portfolios. I want my students to feel challenged, supported, valued, respected, and connected in my classes.
I'm looking forward to a great school year. Contact me with any questions or concerns.
