I have been working as a Continuing Professional and Studies adjunct GED instructor since 2018. For the past 30 years, I have been dedicated to promoting adult education and empowering individuals in their learning journey. My goal is to provide a high-quality education that can have a deep and lasting impact on people's lives.
Today, more than ever, I am proud to have worked with several community-based adult literacy organizations, helping adults who deserve a second chance to achieve their lifelong dream of obtaining their high school diploma.
Learning is not just a one-time thing. It should be a continuous process that evolves with the needs and interests of the learner. I take pride in my ability to engage learners and meet their learning needs. As a lifelong learner myself, I am dedicated to ongoing motivation, perseverance, and exploring the latest research in adult education.
