About Tonya

My passion for education and learning began with my daughter. She began having issues in school in the first grade and it was then that I began to research different resources to help her succeed in school. I looked into several learning techniques that would help her comprehend her coursework better. From there I decided to work with children with both learning, behavioral, and emotional issues. As I began working in the mental health field, I really began looking at how my clients learn and tried to assist them with assignments in that capacity instead of how I thought they should be learning. I realized then that learning is a unique process that is different for everyone. This sparked a passion for teaching others according to his or her own unique learning style and making sure that he or she is able to comprehend, gain, and retain whatever the subject matter is. My motto is that learning is a unique process that is different for everyone and which makes it exciting, fresh, and new.

I am currently receiving a Master's in Education from the University of Phoenix, with which I will be finished in December 2015, and I am currently a Substitute teacher for a County School. I have been working in the mental health field for the past 15 years. During this time I have worked with DD clients, substance abuse clients, MR clients and those with mental health diagnosis. I am considered a Master level Qualified Professional according to NC-Mental Health Requirements and will hopefully be a licensed Christian Therapist by 2017. As an educator I think it is important to teach according to how a person learns and this will ensure that he or she will retain and apply what is being taught. My plans are to begin a non-profit that will be focused on education, motivation, and developing our young people to be productive, knowledgeable, and successful in whatever they desire to do and be.
