CEO Welcomes New Lakewood Instructor
(Michelle is working at the Community Educational Outreach men’s facility located in Lakewood, Colorado)
Michelle received her Bachelor’s of Science degree from Texas State University, San Marcos, TX. Michelle followed a career in environmental science where she worked for the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, and the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
During this time she took six months to volunteer in South America as an ESL teacher as well as environmental stewardship to children in Ecuador. She also has volunteered with the Big Brother Big Sister Program for over three years as a mentor. In addition, she volunteered with the non-profit organization, Growing Home, as a tutor of math and reading for first graders at Tennyson Knolls Elementary School.
During these volunteer experiences within the non-profit sector, she realized her passion for teaching. She changed her experience and background has led her to pursue a new career as an adult educator instructor. Here she can help give others the power of education and respect that everyone deserves.
