Why did you choose BlueSky?

I chose BlueSky because I believe that online schooling is a wonderful way to meet non-traditional student needs. It also gives students and staff the flexibility in a hectic society to work when best suits them. I believe this flexibility helps students have more success in their educational goals.

"Students get more individualized attention from all staff utilizing the various ways of communication."

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

I believe the way BlueSky provides a 3-person support team for ALL students is quite special. I also feel that students get more individualized attention from all staff utilizing the various ways of communication in this online environment (phone calls, messaging, Amvonet, emails, etc.). Finally, I believe the administrative staff are caring and attentive to students and staff alike.

What do you like to do when you're not teaching?

I absolutely love to read! I enjoy spending time with family and our dog Lily. We enjoy frolfing (Frisbee golfing), yard games like lawn golf and playing card and board games. I also enjoy cooking and working on home improvement projects.
