About Pamela

I've worked in education for over a decade, starting with an HR-Payroll information systems project and next with an educational technology consulting team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I love working with young adults and adults seeking to complete their high school equivalency (HSE). With the Covid-19 pandemic, education will never be the same! I love a challenge and converting to primarily online teaching has been incredible! Talk about on-the-job and just-in-time training! It's been a period of significant growth and transition for students, instructors, and parents. We truly are in this all together!

In 2017, I accepted a position teaching the Pathways young adults HSE class with the Ritenour Adult Learning Center. Over the summer of 2019, I began teaching adult HSE students at the Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois. Working with out-of-school youth and adult learners has been incredibly rewarding and challenging. Each day is different and my students inspire me.

I live in the greater St. Louis area with my husband, James, and daughter, Ollie. We have a dog named Bart.

I am a graduate of Phillips Academy (Andover, MA), Vanderbilt University (Women's Studies, BA, Nashville, TN), and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (HR Education, Ed.M.). I am proud to be a part of the Adult Education, Workforce Development, and Distance Learning Technology doctorate of education cohort at the University of Missouri-St. Louis in the College of Education (beginning Fall 2020). I hold adult education credentials in Missouri and Illinois. In Illinois, I have also earned the standards proficient credential in language arts and have begun working towards a credential in special learner needs in adult education.
