From the Instructor:
Hello dear students, My name is Mary Schutten and I have over 25 years of experience in Training & Development, Continuous Quality Improvement and Project Management. My client list includes Intel, Alcatel, Mattel, Wacher, Public Health, and Race for the Cure etc. My philosophy: I believe that everything and everyone should work to continuously improve. I admire that you are doing that right now by attending college! As for me, for example, I work to make this course better every term based on student feedback. I am a working consultant so my workload is like yours challenging but rewarding. I also believe that everyone with a positive attitude and good work ethic does very well in my classes. If you want to work to improve or build your skills to make yourself more marketable then this is the class for you. In this class you will gain a solid grounding in what supervision is all about. I love living and working in the NW. I live on a houseboat and enjoy participating in triathlons (the short ones)! I also enjoy watching just about any sport. (Honestly, I havent figured out cricketyet!) Other interests: I am currently learning Spanish, working on a civic bridge naming project and taking road trips all over the PNW! I hope you sign up for this class so we can work together! Prof. Mary
