I have worked at Brewton-Parker College for over 14 years, first in the Development Office, then as the A.A.S.S. director overseeing the Campus Store, College post office and food services. I have taught business and freshman year experience classes since 2009. My interests and areas of studies encompass business classes which include: Human Resource Management (BUS 333), Marketing (BUS 321), Management (BUS 331), Women and Men in Management (BUS 350), and Entrepreneurship (BUS 435). Communications majors would benefit from considering any of the classes mentioned as electives. It is also a pleasure getting to know our freshman students through teaching BPC 105 and BPC 110.
In my classes, students are afforded opportunities to incorporate information gleaned from textbooks as well as real-world experiences and resources. Students are encouraged to consider their personal/professional goals, ambition and employment trends throughout their college career. Information from the Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook (http://www.bls.gov/ooh/business-and-financial/home.htm ) demonstrates the importance and need for human resource managers (21% growth), market research analysts (41% growth), and managers/analysts (22% growth) for large and small businesses.
As a Brewton-Parker general studies (business concentration) graduate, I especially appreciate our small school Christian environment. It allows me to know our students by name and to share experiences with them.
