The largest room in the world is the room to learn and grow!
I grew up on the East Coast in NY and Connecticut. As a child, in school, concepts were not clear and I always 'just managed' to get by. I wasn't diagnosed with a learning disability until the later part of High School. After graduating high school I attended a post graduate crash course year on catch up fundamental skills that I missed throughout my earlier years of learning.
I really learned how to learn while attending and earning an Associates degree from Landmark College in Putney, VT. It was during this valuable time I knew my full potential and mastered self reflection, adaptive learning and success!
I continued on with my education obtaining a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and a Masters of Science in Management (graduating with honors!). I have applied my skills in various industries including: Hotel Guest Relations, Executive Assistant, Office Manager and Proposal Writing.
After having my own 3 children, I became an 'accidental homeschooler' and immediately fell in love with the creativity and 'make it your own' way of teaching. As I teach and watch my children grown, I also grow with them. Together we take a wonderful educational journey together. There is no 'one size fits all' learning and I am very lucky to have such great educational choices for my family.
I am excited to work with Alyssa and Golden Star Educational Services!
