Academic Coach

Fun Facts:

Structured, Passionate, Empathetic

Hi! I’m Erin! I am an Academic Coach at Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Chaminade University, my master’s in education in Learning Disabilities and Emotional Disturbances k-12 at George Mason University, and my PhD in education and Special Education professional leadership at University of Houston. I have 20 years of experience teaching at all levels of the classroom including as a professor. I also served in the United States Navy as a crypto linguist/analyst. School is the first significant place in a community where humans learn to interact with others. Here, students gain a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, and if successfully mentored/coached, they learn how to leverage their strengths to reach personal goals!
