My name is Angie D. Izard, Ed.D. and I am a Senior Lecturer in the UWM Academic Opportunity Center. I teach a study skills course for students who do not meet the University’s standard admission criteria. The purpose of this course is to enlighten and educate students about the skills and study strategies needed for academic success in a post-secondary environment. many of the students who start out in the Academic Opportunity Center go on to become successful students and professionals in many different professions.
As a educator and potential presenter, I want to talk with students (middle school and high school) and their parents about the importance of seeking out additional educational opportunities beyond the high school years.
