I served as both University of Phoenix (UOP) local campus faculty and School of Advanced Studies (SAS) dissertation chair. As an instructor for the UOP local campus for the past seven years, I facilitated courses in Educational Administration and Supervision, Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction, Elementary Education, Research, and Assessment and Evaluation, and served as Lead Faculty Area Chair for MAED programs in Teacher Leadership, Teacher Education, and Administration. For the past four years, I have participated as SAS dissertation chair and committee member. Additionally, I taught post-secondary Educational Leadership and content courses for University of Nevada, Reno, Southern Utah University, Nevada Regional Professional Development Program, Clark County School District, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. For the past 20 years, I have served as a classroom teacher, literacy specialist, and district administrator. I am a retired principal of Garehime Elementary School, an innovative public school in Las Vegas, NV, that operates as a model city. Students learned the skills of entrepreneurship and citizenship as they designed and operated businesses and governmental agencies. My current and ongoing areas of research include: preparing K-20 students with 21st century skills; preparing 21st century school leaders; promoting student entrepreneurial thinking; and problem-based and project-based learning. My awarded degrees include: EdD in Educational Leadership from University of Nevada, Las Vegas; EdS in Administration, Nova Southeastern University; MS in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Nevada, Las Vegas; BA in Anthropology from University of Arizona, Tucson.
