I teach Language Arts during the HISET program and assist students with job preparation in the HIRE II program. I am excited every day to come to work and make an impact on the lives of our students. I love that CEO is focused on helping individuals improve their skills and providing them with an opportunity to succeed in life. I truly believe there is power in being a lifelong learner. When a student overcomes an obstacle, there is a powerful change in their perception on life. This is “lightning in a bottle” and it cannot be measured.

My role as a teacher in Greeley is rewarding because a real difference can be made in students’ perceptions toward mathematical problem solving skills. I strive to achieve student development and- in turn- the students inspire me to be the best possible educator I can be.

I teach language arts and assist with the HIRE program. I hope my students will leave my lessons with a better understanding of English in order to pursue satisfying jobs in the community. I like teaching language skills to students enrolled in CEO classes in order for them to pass the GED tests so that they will earn a higher income through better employment with their language abilities and education credentials.

I am the Language Arts Instructor in Adams County. I'm honored to be a part of CEO's mission in fostering educational and employment opportunities for this vulnerable population. A successful student is someone that not only obtains their GED certificate, but also comes away from this program believing in themselves as much as I believe in them. Their success is my success.

Program Coordinator

I work as a math instructor and help clients with job readiness training in our HIRE program.  The clients that I've worked with unanimously express a great deal of gratitude for the work we do and the assistance we offer. When a student overcomes a difficult educational or employment related obstacle, there is a very obvious moment of pride as well as an impression of restored agency that is incredibly fulfilling to witness as an educator, mentor, and human.
