Angie has worked in education for most of her not so young life. She has worked her way through community college attending here at VUJ. Pushing onward, she completed two bachelor's degrees at Oakland City University, and a Master's Degree from the University of Evansville. As you can tell, she loves acedemia and it made perfect sense to work in the higher education field. You can find her in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) if you need assistance with Study Skills, Computers, Communication, testing, advising, are a student in her classes, and pretty much anything that you have questions about.
Gaylene spent her teaching career working in four states with students ranging in age from preschool to adult. Though retired, she fills her time with a multitude of volunteer opportunities, traveling, tennis, pickle ball, volleyball, hiking, eating chocolate, and, of course, being a part of ACE. She enjoys working with the students at VUJ in Math, English, and Study Skills. Her hope is to help them develop skills that will be valuable not only in their coursework, but also in their lifelong learning journey. If she could have one superpower, it would be time-travel because, "Just think how many more interesting places there are to see! And, how cool would it be to witness historical events as they happen!"
Marilyn played Division I basketball while she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Biology at the University of Louisville. She also holds a Master's Degree from Western Kentucky University. She has worked in the public sector as well as in education throughout her career. Her teaching career includes stints at public and private schools in three different states. Marilyn enjoys spending her free time with her family and friends, walking her energetic beagle dogs, and experiencing nature.
Maryla has been a VUJ tutor for over 20 years, and has used computers since before there were PCs. Coming from the East Coast, she appreciates Southern Indiana's mild climate and friendly people. As a sculptor and jewelry artist, she is a creative problem solver. She can help you with Accounting, Business Math, Computers, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Programming, Web Page Design, Quantitative Reasoning, and most of whatever else comes up. "Keep smiling! It makes people wonder what you've been up to."
Derry has been a teacher for 25 plus years. She has taught K through college in three different states. Her degrees include a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and a Multi-Subject Teaching Credential. At VUJ, you can find Derry either working as a part-time lab assistant for the science department, teaching Medical Terminology and Study Skills, or coaching in the Academic Center for Excellence. She can help you with Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Medical Terminology, and Microbiology. Her greatest joy is being able to help students, and see them grow and excel in their scholastic endeavors.
