Teaching Philosophy

I want students to apply business concepts, not just learn them. I use my work experiences, and theirs, to illustrate the role classroom material plays in real-life situations. I encourage interactive and relevant discussions to stimulate critical thinking and decision making. Whether we are playing a game or taking a test, students think creatively and hopefully, maximize the strength of their ‘mind muscles.’


Maria has led strategic marketing, fundraising, and management functions at nonprofit organizations for 30 years. Her start as an intern ignited a passion that eventually led to being the chief executive of organizations serving vulnerable populations. Always working with a limited budget, Maria has experience in human resource, marketing, financial, and operational management. She brings her experience to the classroom, showing that what one learns today will be used tomorrow.
