I'm looking to change career fields after 23 years of teaching. A new career with Otis would challenge me with collaboration, data, and concrete goals. I am a quick learner and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
I am a flexible professional possessing expertise in any area that I've set my mind to so far (teaching, social media, website, overseeing content, managing and creating a positive atmosphere for both students (teaching) and employees (Sisters Site). I'm a hardworking, dedicated, and goal-oriented professional with over 23 years of experience in managing and leading. I am well-versed in developing and implementing leadership curricula. I've provided safe learning environments that fostered growth of students and other teachers, both academically and emotionally. I've optimized performance by promoting goal-oriented activities and encouraging critical thinking. Over my career, I've always strived to do more than regular classroom duties and expectations. I've been given Exemplary Teacher awards, mentored numerous younger teachers, led the district in professional development, wrote grants, served as a team leader, department head, and district point person for Ohio's legislative PBIS mandates for several years.
I'm also results-driven and extremely organized in building my website business to over 1 million monthly users during its height which led to hiring four employees. All the while, I had very young children and continued teaching. I grew my social media audience up to nearly 800,000 (twitter, FB, Pinterest). I accomplished this through creating partnerships with major and minor brands. I provided public speaking and consulting to companies, libraries and universities. Companies flew me to Florida, California and NY to work with them. I was regularly featured on Fox 8 News, 1480 WHBC, 95.5 the Light, and held a weekly money column in the Canton Repository. I was also featured in Akron's About magazine. I sold advertising on my website which grew the business to a dedicated server.
