Specialist in Career Development Programs 


 

A consultant for Intermediate School Districts and CTE Programs for 19 years, see below for samples of past work.

 

 

I connect career education with elements across the K-12 and college systems, educational clients choose from the following options:

 

  • Design, promote, recruit participants to facilitate standards-focused professional development experiences for teachers centered on career relevance.
  • Work with CareerCruising.com and other career-development websites to help teachers and counselors connect learning to career pathways and the needs and interests of the learners.
     
  • Work with teachers (including special education) and counselors to develop meaningful units and lesson plans that integrate students’ EDPs, STEM, Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards “practices.”
     
  • Deliver presentations and speeches at conferences and meetings on the benefits and methods for project-based learning, authentic assessment and creating meaningful classroom experiences for students.

 

  • Develop partnerships between K-12 educators, higher education and area businesses.
     
  • Manage records and contact database to communicate with business leaders, college administrators, superintendents, principals, professors, teachers and students.
