Educational Perspective

I am an enthusiastic educator! I like to integrate my unique, varied education with my business and teaching experience.

I'm excited to delve into the world of adult learning. Through my studies of dialogue, I hope to find a way to improve classroom (f2f, synchronous and asynchronous) interactions. I want to facilitate dialogue that enlightens people to move from passive to active participants in their lives. Connecting people to others in their community through dialogue provides the key to solving many of our local and global problems. Once people realize that they are not alone in struggling with their problems, that their struggle is common to their neighbors, they can begin to work toward shared goals and solutions.

I do not view education as limited to imparting what we know with those who do not, but rather creating experiences that challenge students' preconceived notions, rock their worlds, and hopefully get them hooked on learning for life. Experience as an educator has taught me that students learn best when their passions are ignited. To light that fire, adult learning needs to break down the barriers of stale learning models and open to interactive, participatory, experiential learning. Adults come to the classroom with life experiences that changes their perceptions and warrants acknowledgement. Everyone has something to teach in the adult classroom. Dialogue provides the framework for creating an environment where adults can succeed best.

Personal History

Here’s a quick reference of my personal background: grew up in Vancouver, WA, attended high school in Littleton, CO, earned my bachelors degree, started my family, and began a business adventure in Fort Collins, CO, and settled in Parker, CO. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and we have three amazing children. We love animals, so we have a Chihuahua, a Lab/Border collie mix, a bearded dragon, numerous salt water fish, and a chubby little hamster. My husband and I enjoy cooking, hiking, biking, traveling (especially road trips), and attending our children’s numerous sporting and music activities.
