We'd like to introduce you to our Business Office Administration and Accounting Program Supervisors

Teaching is more than standing in front of a classroom and imparting knowledge. It's about "listening to students, knowing their names and caring about them as individuals".

Shelby believes giving students the confidence to succeed is as valuable as anything they’ll learn in a textbook.

Get to know Shelby...

  • What inspires you as a teacher? One word – students. I hope they know they inspire us as much we hope to inspire them. Many overcome immense obstacles to reach their goals. And despite the seemingly insurmountable hurdles they’re here, pushing forward day after day. That level of dedication drives us all to work even harder for our students' success.
  • What do you think is an important element in developing relationships with students? I like to share my own successes and failures with our students. Real life experiences help to build trust and are sometimes much more valuable than a lesson out of the book.
  • How do you help struggling students? First we discuss the problem and identify a few possible solutions, and then we create a support plan to use as a guide toward improvement. Sometimes a student stops attending class, and we discover that they were falling behind, or needed to change their class, or maybe they had transportation problems. We have resources on site to help with many of these concerns, and we can provide referrals to local area resources for more challenging issues.
  • What advice would you share with graduating students? Practice your interviewing skills daily. Everyone gets nervous about interviews, but it’s how you present yourself under stress that demonstrates your value as an executive assistant. For many business grads, demonstrating grace under fire will be a daily work requirement, and the key to success is to be prepared.

"I can honestly say that I never saw myself teaching or running a program in a college, but I am thrilled that I made this choice to try something different."

"I feel I’ve become a very important part of our students' lives and future careers."

  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? The moment that the students walk across the stage as they graduate is such a proud moment, and one that I never can forget. I love knowing that I played a part in changing the lives of my students.
  • Please share a memorable moment/success story you’ve experienced at IntelliTec. There is not a single success story, because really, each and every one of our students is their own success story.
  • Have you faced a difficult/challenging time in your life? If yes, how did you resolve the issue? When I started my Master’s Degree there was a professor who was fairly critical of my work. I had to learn to put my feelings aside and push through the class and not only survive, but finish with a good grade. I realized I couldn’t let others’ opinions deter me from completing tasks on my terms.
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students in your department, what would it be? It is never too late to start an education. I’ve told many of my students time and time again that people can take away your house, your car, and any of your material possessions, but they can never EVER take away your education.
