About Us

TPAI was founded to help K12 professional teachers expand on their classroom skills, learn new teaching approaches, and obtain post-secondary graduate course credit.

As a teacher for twenty years, I understand the challenges of finding the time to take courses when you work full-time, and I know the difficulty in finding courses that meet your specific needs. TPAI was created to offer flexible graduate courses that are more meaningful, practical and personalized for you—the types of courses that you’ll find immediately useful in your classroom.

As the lead instructor, I bring over 20 years of educational experience in both U.S. and international schools where I’ve taught Elementary Education, Math, Science, English/Language Arts, ELL, Gifted Education and more. Throughout my career, I have had the honor to teach both adults and students from diverse backgrounds, differing cultures, and languages. I understand the challenges today’s teachers face and the needs our students require.

I have a BA in English from UW-Madison, an M.Ed. from the University of Minnesota and have recently completed a year of postgraduate research and studies in gifted education. In addition to teaching, I worked, for many years, as the publisher and editor of an educational children’s magazine. I bring this creative and dedicated approach to the courses I teach through TPAI.

With us, you’ll have instant access to graduate-level courses that will expand your skills, highlight new teaching approaches, and put you well on your way toward reaching your goals. Whatever your area of focus, TPAI has courses that you’ll find useful. We’ve specifically designed and organized our courses to be easy for the busy full-time teacher to follow. Join us, and see how convenient and rewarding it can be to take graduate courses from TPAI.

We’d look forward to hearing from you!
