Global Educator

I have been dedicated to education for over 28 years. I am impressed with the world’s ever growing online education community. I have been an online instructor since 2010, and I enjoy setting up virtual classrooms.
I am called the “queen of tutorials” in the online instruction world.

I create easily navigated classrooms that include a video tutorial at the beginning of each section. My students comment that my virtual classroom is an exciting learning environment with active Discussion Boards, challenging rubrics, extensive essay comments and other streams of feedback.
One of my specialties as a distance learning instructor is working with students of all kinds: The growing population of nontraditional students:

• Students who did not immediately continue education after graduation from high school
• Attend college only part time
• Work full time (35 hours or more per week)
• Are financially independent
• Have children or dependents other than a spouse
• Are a single parent

At the same time, I must also address the needs of our traditional students:

• Students who enroll in college immediately after graduation from high school,
• Pursue their studies on a full-time basis
• Complete their bachelor’s degrees in 4 or 5 years at a young age of 22-23
• Typically financially dependent on others,
• Do not have children,
• Consider their college career to be their primary responsibility
• Are employed only on a part-time basis if at all during the academic year.

I am also an active member of the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS), which supports full access to education for post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities world-wide. Additionally, I support Association on Higher Education and Disability. The AHEAD program is a professional membership organization for individuals involved in the development of policy and in the provision of quality services to meet the needs of persons with disabilities involved in all areas of higher education.

Outcome continues to be a growing, stimulated internet environment where students feel part of a global learning community.
