Care and Development of Young Children Program Director

I have been affiliated with Skills USA for 14 years as an advisor and the Chapter Advisor for the college for the past five years. I am the Director of the Care and Development of Young Children's program at the Sullivan campus. I have been at Northshore going on for 15 years. I come to work every day eager to teach my students. Skills USA benefits the students to grow and develop workplace personality and technical skills grounded in academics. Students gain access to exclusive scholarship opportunities. In addition, they earn recognition through the SkillsUSA state and National career competition program.
