Teacher Certification 1998 BBA - Lamar University 1982

Mrs. Karen Nichols

I graduated with a degree in Business Administration and worked in various fields  for years before marrying and moving to San Antonio.  While deciding if I wanted to try something new, I  substitute taught for a while and then was asked to work at a temp agency.  I was amazed when I realized that so many wonderful people were lacking skills required for job placement!  They could not pass the placement tests that we used and that severely limited the types of jobs for which they were eligible.

I realized that those two short term jobs were leading me to a decision to earn my teaching certificate and I have never been happier!  I began teaching in 1997 and my hope has always been that I can help students become contributing members of society and to help develop their own individual strengths that will help them to succeed in finding employment in the future.
