Vikki Hughes TESOL graduate

weeks away from ushering in 2016? For me, a new year always brings in notions of reflecting on new beginnings, inspirations and opportunities. The ability for reinvention and rejuvenation is so inspiring. Just ask Vikki Hughes. Her inner voice spurred her career transformation from retail management to language education. After taking our Spanish courses, she was encouraged to pursue a Teaching English as a Second Language certificate. Today, Vikki has been able to connect with hundreds of people in the community who desire to learn English through her work with the English as a Second Language program at the Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Marietta. Read more about her exciting journey on Page 20. Speaking of rejuvenation, our TESOL program now has a new exciting format – including the addition of an externship! Like many of our programs, we aim to provide beneficial pathways for you through apprenticeships, site tours, guest speakers and other opportunities for hands-on learning and exposure to industry professionals. Now, it’s your turn for personal empowerment, reinvention and success. Mark your calendars for January 7 for our brand-new Open House. Take this step, and we’ll be with you the rest of way. So many of our graduates have been able to launch businesses, gain promotions and impact others. Soon, you’ll be among the ranks of successful students who can truly say,

BE YOUR OWN

BOSS Several courses pave the way for aspiring entrepreneurs Do you dream of owning your own business?

D

Being your own boss? Setting your own schedule? Did you know we have several professional training programs that will set you on the path to do just that? The economy and job market are shifting with more people starting their own businesses or working as an independent contractor or freelancer. Inc. com stated that 63% of people in their 20s either own their own business or want to someday, and of those who were not already entrepreneurs, 55% hope to be in the future. Today, a new form of entrepreneur is emerging. Our Culinary Apprenticeship program provides essential training for individuals who desire to work in restaurants or catering companies. Several students aspire to become executive chefs or business owners. Two of our recent graduates are prefect examples of this. Edgard Sanchez is a 22-year military veteran. He used his remaining VA Education Benefits to enroll in our culinary program. The skills he learned proved instrumental in his efforts of launching his own food truck business which has garnered a significant amount of local and national media exposure. His truck’s French name of “C’est Tout Bon 2 Eat” means “It’s All Good To Eat.” Its eye-catching exterior was crowned Mobile-Cuisine.com’s 2015 Best Food Truck Graphic Design of the Year. Sanchez’s Cajun menu is a tribute to New Orleans, where he spent most of his childhood. Another culinary graduate, Margaret Karidza, successfully reinvented herself. After spending 15 years in corporate sales, she followed her true passion of cooking. “When I’m cooking, I don’t feel like I’m working,” she said. Karidza has opened her own restaurant called Spot 364 in Mableton. The establishment mixes her favorite tastes from Africa and America that features several signature burgers and sandwiches.

#Success: Derek Brott implemented the skills and knowledge he learned in our Social Media Marketing program and started his own business. “I knew taking this class would be a great way to learn how to promote my services and market myself,” he said. Brott says one of the most challenging things people face is how to market and brand themselves. His social media marketing business aims to assist clients in website design, social media consulting and blogging. After qualifying for military benefits through MyCAA (for spouses of active duty and activated National Guard and Reserve Service members), Pat Davis enrolled in our Meeting & Event Management program. The education and experience she received in the course led her to join the Georgia chapter of MPI (Meeting Professional International) and start her own conference and meeting business called Realized Events.

Our Professional Development in Gerontology certificate program fields a very diverse group of students. Individuals from all walks of life enroll in the course for a variety of reasons. Many are seeking to start or build their current business designed to work with older adults. Chris Foster said the class gave him the opportunity to expand his knowledge and keep his competitive edge in the Atlanta market. “I own and operate one of the largest non-medical home care agencies in Atlanta,” he said. “This course helped me understand my clients and how my caregivers will interact with them on a daily basis and has allowed me to communicate better with my staff, clients and their families.”

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? What’s your next move?

Reinvention comes in many forms.

After serving a previous life in retail management, Vikki Hughes’ inner voice kept telling her, “Now is the time to learn Spanish.” It was something she’d always thought about, but work and family were higher priorities that consumed most of her time and energy. Already familiar with the College from previously taking a computer course, Hughes enrolled in her first Spanish class through OLLI which offers courses designed for seasoned adults 50 and over. On her first day of class, she immediately knew she made the right decision. Thrilled with her learning progress, partly due to outstanding teaching, Hughes matriculated through Spanish I, II, and III. “Nancy DeLisle-Brown was one of my favorite teachers,” Hughes said. “She made the class an experience which helped me immensely with language retention/acquisition. It wasn’t just book work.” DeLisle-Brown said, “Vikki is very enthusiastic and an encourager to everyone. She is very oriented to people’s interests and will do anything within her power to help others achieve their goals.” As her language quest progressed, she thought about her own place of worship and how she could help the Spanish speaking members. When Hughes contacted Yolanda Berrios, coordinator of Hispanic Ministries, at The Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Marietta, she was asked to teach English. “I laughed and said I would try,” Hughes said. “At the time it seemed like a complete reversal of my objective. However, I found out I enjoyed teaching. The students were learning English and it provided me Spanish speaking exposure.”

I remember one day driving to KSU thinking my life is changing drastically… Vikki Hughes, TESOL graduate

Reflecting on her Spanish class experiences, Hughes remembered how the teachers orchestrated and implemented their lessons. She realized she needed to equip herself in this manner in order to maximize classroom instruction time and increase student language absorption. That’s when her inner voice started speaking again. “I registered for TESOL classes this time and encountered a program with substance,” Hughes said. “The format exemplified the latest in TESOL education with a well-rounded curriculum. Maura Nicholson, a seasoned and gifted teacher, produced engaging and

20 JANUARY - MARCH 2016 // 470-578-6765 // ccpe.kennesaw.edu

thought provoking lessons that evoked student-centered learning. Fortified with knowledge, resources and empirical exposure, I was ready to move forward.” “Vikki was an outstanding student in both our TESOL program and Spanish courses,” said Lyn Cohen, CCPE’s Languages program manager. “After finishing the TESOL program in 2013, she reached out to me in an effort to locate prospective teachers in the community. We assisted her with recruitment for instructors using the job board for TESOL grads.” This led to a partnership between Transfiguration (TFIG) and CCPE creating reciprocal benefits for both. TESOL graduates volunteer teach in TFIG ESL classrooms gaining valuable hands-on experience while the students receive knowledgeable and professional instruction. For the past three years under Hughes’ guidance, the ESL program at Transfiguration has flourished. Semester enrollments are up to 50-75 students with six to eight teachers and assistants. Additionally, Beginner and Intermediate Spanish classes have been added to the church’s language program. She says the biggest reward and motivation is seeing the students’ progress. “Vikki’s an excellent ambassador for CCPE,” Nicholson said. “She opened her school to student observations and even hired graduates of the TESOL program. She’s a perfect example of someone who took advantage of what the College of Continuing and Professional Education has to offer and ran with it.” As Hughes’ journey continues, she is now focused on building more community awareness by supporting similar programs for social justice and economic value. She is also planning on returning to CCPE to enroll in a grant-writing course. Additionally, she is exploring job opportunities for teaching online courses as well as making travel plans to Latin America to teach English and for Spanish culture immersion. “I remember one day driving to KSU thinking my life is changing drastically from a retail business owner of 20 years into an educator. Is this really happening? At that very moment I looked to the side of the road and on the marquee of a tiny church read, ‘Even Moses was a basket case.’ I laughed and cried at the same time.” In the meantime, Hughes will continue developing the TFIG ESL program, along with her teaching skills and résumé, while listening for her inner voice to say, “Vamos!”

In the past year, our Paralegal program has experienced tremendous growth in several forms. The enhancements are highlighted by a new on-site law library, addition of daytime classes and several new high-profile attorney and paralegal instructors. In 2015, we celebrated a monumental event,” said Jennifer Henderson, Paralegal program manager. “For 30 years, our program has trained thousands of students to enter the legal field. The new addition of the law library adds an element of prestige that cements the quality of our program for the next 30 years and beyond.” The law library, dedicated to longtime Atlanta lawyer Joe R.

ACE THE EXAM Do you have anxiety when it comes to taking tests?

T

The pressure to do well on a

test can be too much to handle, especially when it comes to acceptance exams. If you are stressed about an upcoming assessment, we can help. Our Test Preparation classes are an excellent way to boost your confidence and reduce your anxiety on exam day. Our SAT preparation courses provide the flexibility to choose online or classroom enrollment. The classroom course covers all sections on the exam while the online courses are divided into Quantitative and Verbal & Science. These courses break down the strategies and reasoning tactics that work on the SAT. The interactive activities provided in these courses are designed to sharpen your critical thinking skills to easily decipher the correct answer. In March 2016, the SAT test will be changing from the last 10 years. The College Board tells us that they are doing away with unnecessary vocabulary, removing the penalty for guessing, and the essay will be updated and optional. We are planning to evolve our courses

You can do it!

MyCAA Funding Aids Spouses • The Department of Defense offers up to $4,000 to military spouses of active duty and activated National Guard and Reserve Service members • Funding allows eligible military spouses to invest in education and training programs that will enable them to obtain employment and advance in high-growth, high-demand, and nationally portable career fields.

MILITARY EDUCATION BENEFITS

with this update starting in 2016. Please note: If you take an SAT prep course before 2016, it will be for the 2015 exam. We have developed TEAS prep courses with busy college students in mind. The courses are separated into the four areas of the TEAS, Science, Reading, English & Language Usage, and Mathematics, which allows students to customize their exam preparation by selecting the courses that best meet their needs. For the most comprehensive exam preparation, we recommend taking all four courses in any order. Since the TEAS is a large factor of acceptance to the majority of nursing schools, this time of year is ideal to be preparing for the exam for spring applications. The additional test preparation courses we offer include GED, LSAT, ACT, GMAT and GRE. From high school to graduate school, we provide solutions for various steps in your educational journey.

Having military benefits was a major influence in taking the course as I used the GI Bill units shared by my husband.
