“One step for MPTU. One grand leap for you.” — Shenica Graham
About Our Founder
Shenica Graham has a passion for education. She holds a BA in Psychology and BA in General Studies, both from Wichita State University. She teaches biblical and psychology courses, specializing in spiritual development and mental health disorders, especially schizoaffective bipolar disorder (which she copes with daily along with post traumatic stress disorder and major depression).
Shenica has over 20 years of experience in online writing (since 1996). She posts a daily devotional at wiseeku.wordpress.com and a women’s ministry blog at shineonpurpuse.wordpress.com. she has authored thousands of pages over the last two decades as a freelance writer.
Shenica has over 10 years of experience teaching Bible study classes. She is now taking her experience and laser pointing it towards teaching psychology classes online. As an avid online psychology student, she knows there is room in this market for a teacher.
She is also catering to the mental health community, offering courses that help students develop practical coping skills to rise from their battles with mental illness.
Shenica began having symptoms of mental illness as a teenager and so understands many of the issues that complicate challenges facing youth including suicidal ideology. Now in her early forties, she lives mental health from both perspectives of patient and life coach. Her goal is to empower those living with mental illness and to educate those working with them.
My courses teach practical life skills that can modify behavior and help avoid debilitating symptoms of mental illness. Interventions are based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Teaching is my first academic love. If mental health sparks your interest, I look forward to welcoming you to classes that will make the mind work for you. – Shenica Graham
Philosophy of Teaching
My philosophy of teaching is that all students can learn when empowered to benefit from the unique needs of the learning community. I need to know how to accommodate different learning styles. My teaching style is adaptable and open to student energies of inquiry, expression, and exploration. I train my students to be accepting of themselves and of others. They will each be empowered to reach their highest potential.
I believe that the teacher’s role is to guide the learning process with attention to individual student needs. Each student must have choices that peek their curiosity in a safe environment with access to the best technology and resources available. Hands-on activities will motivate learning and retention.
