Why She Loves ABEA:
Networking with others in my profession! Sharing ideas and learning about new ones!
A Piece of Advice She'd Give a Brand New Business Educator:
Get to know your students! This will help you more than you realize. Knowing how students learn best will enable you to teach in a way they can understand the content. Also, remember it is okay if a lesson doesn't go as planned. Start each day fresh!
What She Enjoys Outside of Teaching:
Family time, volunteering (church and Junior League of Shoals), traveling, reading, and sporting activities with my children (softball, baseball, and golf).
Chat with other business educators.
Are you on Twitter? If so, join business educators from all over as we discuss issues and share ideas related to business education. It's a great way to connect with other business educators, and you're guaranteed to learn something new.
The #BusEdu chat is held every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7PM CST. Visit the chat archive page to learn more. See you there!
