When I think about who my greatest motivator has been, I would have to dedicate that title to my mother. Growing up, I watched her work diligently and hard as an educator until she finally retired after 35 years.
Her commitment and love for her students along with her perseverance inspired me on many levels. Throughout my career I have assisted students in their pursuit of happiness and success as a counselor, assistant principal, and even an adjunct professor.
Now, I am the creator and founder of the innovative and effective College Prep Masterclass course.
I was compelled to design and implement my College Prep course once I realized there was a real need in our industry for students to receive thorough guidance on the intricacies of starting college.
This realization came while reflecting on my personal struggles in college as well as seeing some of my students stumble on their own academic journeys.
Personally, I had a hard time in college nailing down a career path. In fact, I changed my major three times! In addition, I had never been taught effective note taking or study skills.
At the time I did the best I could, but I wonder if I could have done better if I had possessed those essential abilities.
