WHAT STUKENT COURSEWARE HAVE YOU USED? 

 

I use the “Modern Marketing Principles” courseware, Mimic Pro for digital marketing, the “Marketing Strategies” courseware, and Mimic Social.

 

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU SHARE WITH OTHER TEACHERS?  

 

Use the textbook’s tools, i.e., activities, assignments, lecture slides, and worksheets. As for the Mimic simulations, you should go through them with a fine-tooth comb yourself before assigning them to students. It helps to see how the simulations work from beginning to end so that you can assist students if needed. They are also really fun!

 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND TALENTS?  

 

I don’t have a lot of hobbies. Since I started teaching, I haven’t had spare time to do something for myself other than planned vacations. I enjoy working out, I love the sunshine, warmth, hanging out by a pool or flying with my husband, outdoor adventures, and watching Ohio sports or those my grandchildren and students are playing. I have been a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan for over 40 years. I am told that my talent is the ability to remain positive and continually have a smile on my face. I am also told that my energy is contagious.
