College – a Dream for Some Moms
For the last eleven years, I’ve worked with single mothers. I founded SMORE for Women and we hosted numerous events for them. They were fun, encouraging and memorable. I became a certified Life Coach and met with single moms one-on-one. I’ve learned that the one common, and most significant thing, the moms with the most difficulties have in common is the need for an education.
The Educational Support Program (ESP) is making this dream possible. The ESP is a way to provide a support system for women who do not have the resources or family support for them to go to college while raising children alone.
I hold a degree from Lamar University in Speech and a Master’s from the University of Texas. I was an educator in regular and special education for twenty years, finishing my professional career as a Braille teacher. I am a Certified Professional Coach with Fowler International Academy. I married Sam after raising three children as a single mother. In 2007 I founded SMORE for Women. SMORE is a nonprofit association whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, & Empowered. My stories have been published in several Christian books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving, published in July 2015, is available for purchase on Amazon or Barnes & Noble online.
