Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
My first job in high school was teaching swim lessons, and I've taught others as part of every role I've had since. I've led trainings in computer applications (Word, Excel, graphic design), in communications strategies (writing, marketing, feedback), and presented at conferences in front of hundreds of people. My approach to teaching is to understand where students are, identify ways to connect the material to them, and encourage self-learning and exploration.
