Our Keynote Speaker:
Growing up a preacher’s daughter, Tonya has lived a life examined. Everyone always waited for her to mess up. However, she was a strong student, eventual valedictorian of her senior class, choir president, and state championship volleyball player. The desire to “be the best” since everyone was watching started early on in life. Ironically, the reason she’s known in business education is more an accident. She never intended on being a teacher. Business classes were easy, technology was a big interest, and she was prepared to take the “easy path” through college—a degree in management and a guaranteed career in her uncle’s grocery chain. But, a concerned college teacher coupled with a business education adviser changed everything. She was encouraged to consider teaching to use her talents fully, was pushed to get involved in professional development while still in college, and started her lesson plans website as a way to keep track of her bookmarks from computer to computer, instead of using a floppy disk. This launching pad led Tonya to become a known business educator across the United States and beyond. She’s taught in large and small schools with access to both great and minimal technology, with and without air conditioning. Her innovative thinking and positive attitude have helped her to succeed in many teaching environments. Tonya believes strongly that any business teacher can be excellent--regardless of school size, available funds, or cutting edge software—if they only have the passion for students and a tiny bit of creativity. Her enthusiastic approach to instruction will hopefully light a fire that will reignite your passion for both teaching and learning.
