MA Teaching and Learning with Technology

A little bit about me...

I'm a mother of one spunky little toddler daughter. My daughter has been the main motivator in my life that has changed my perception on what it means to truly care and love. After attempting to obtain my Master's a couple of years ago, I buckled down and told myself that I will accomplish this goal and show my daughter that with perseverance and patience anything is possible. So, in October 2013, I contacted an Admissions Advisor with Ashford University and the rest is history. I have had some setbacks while completing my degree concerning my health but was able to get on track to finish what I started. I have enjoyed learning here at Ashford University. More importantly, I have enjoyed working with my advisors, peers, and instructors. This institution has the best faculty and staff and they all are here for you no matter the circumstances. They are motivating, supportive and helpful. Now that the hardest part is over, I am now working towards becoming certified to teach middle school social studies in my hometown.

I want to be a CHAMPS Mentor so that I can help support and motivate others to further their career goals and educational endeavors. Online learning takes much discipline so, I want to be that person who pushes students to not give up and to keep going.
