I began working with high school students somewhat reluctantly in my mid-20s. Over several months, God began to show me that I had a passion for teaching. For whatever reason, I was able to connect very easily with this age group and young college students. My passion for teaching began to grow. I began to realize that this ability was ultimately a gift from the Lord. This led me to exploring more formal teaching and coaching opportunities.
My background involves both athletics and living in an international culture. I became a middle school soccer coach as well as an instructor for the Greenville Literacy Association. Meanwhile, my jobs involved business and marketing. I had worked in the secular arena for a Fortune 500 company. I had also been in sales briefly. The next career move was in the nonprofit arena. During the time I began working with students and pursing a master’s degree. I worked for a local church. My job involved many facets including planning and executing various outreach events and activities as well as creating some content for publications.
As time passed, I wanted to see if I could couple my professional experience with my passion for teaching. Through a series of events over several months, I was able to merge these two ideas with a teaching position at North Greenville University. I never realized how God was working and was redirecting me into Christian higher education.
Working with students as they start thinking for themselves as they transition from an academic environment into a career is very fulfilling to me. I pray I have a positive influence during this transition. Seeing these individuals wrestle as they strive to figure out God’s direction for their lives is extremely fulfilling. Today’s college students are tomorrow’s leaders. I consider working with these individuals a true honor. God continues to grow me in my understanding of Him through much of what I learn as I study and prepare to teach.
Favorite Course to Teach:
BUSN 3100-Professional Development Seminar. I reluctantly began teaching this course, but soon realized how valuable this course is to students. I initially discussed a few resume ideas and interviewing skills in this course. After reading the students’ evaluations of this course, I have learned that this course helps to provide these students with many tools they need as they transition from college to career. Now, this course involves many topical discussions including resumes, cover letters, business etiquette, appropriate dress, proper communication techniques, interviewing, job searching and researching, networking, and many more topics students need to help them confidently begin pursing a career. I have had nearly 300 students come through this course, and many of them state that is is one of the most practical courses they take in college.
