My name is Lisa May. I am a wife and the mother of 8 children (4 boys and 4 girls), ranging in age from 20 to 18 months. They are the reason I am returning to school! I have a BS degree in Finance from Spring Hill College and have been working in the field of finance for 20 years. I worked at a bank as a teller, financial services rep and branch manager. I left banking to begin a career in the mortgage industry 12 years ago. I love what I do but the industry has taken a beating over the last few years and I am looking for more stability. So, I am at South to earn a second degree in education.
I hope to put the many years of experience I have as a mother and employee to use in the classroom. Through the years, I have seen many teaching styles and hope to emulate some and learn from the mistakes of others. But, what I have found, is that educating a child takes an entire community. It takes the support of parents, teachers and society. I hope to acquire the skills through this class that will enable me to incorporate my experiences with technology to relate to and teach the children of tomorrow!
