Instructor, Owns Professional Development Company, Recently Signed First Book Deal

Instructor, Owns Professional Development Company, Recently Signed First Book Deal

Angela Searcy

2016 Doctor of Education, Teaching & Learning

Argosy University, Chicago

College Instructor, Education Consultant, Trainer and Coach

“Many of the things that I learned in the classroom I now teach to my graduate students.”

 

Instructor, Owns Professional Development Company, Recently Signed First Book Deal

 

Dr. Angela Searcy presents her work nationally and has been interviewed on WGN News. But perhaps her biggest career announcement is that her new book has been picked up by Gryphon House, an award-winning publisher of early childhood resources. “I presented my dissertation research at the National Association for the Education of Young Children in November 2017,” she said. “Based on that presentation, I was approached by Gryphon House. I am so grateful that I have been able to present my research in the United States and now I will have an international audience for my book.”

 

Searcy is also a teacher at Erikson Institute, a graduate school focused on child development in Chicago, Illinois. She runs a professional development company, recently applied for a TED Talk and had her research published in the Teachstone Blog.

 

Working with students at the Erikson Institute allows Searcy to teach both continuing education and online courses. She focuses on building a community of practice that supports students in academic work. Searcy is also creating an entirely new course for the fall semester to prepare her students for careers in child development. She takes that passion into her professional development business where she works with preschools, Head Start programs, and Early Head Start programs. In that capacity, Searcy provides instructional support and works with families.

 

She earned a Doctor of Education in Teaching & Learning in 2016 from Argosy University, Chicago. Searcy says that during her time in school, the instructors were connected to and invested in student success. She added that the strategies she learned in school are now being passed on to her graduate students. 

 

Searcy decided to pursue a Doctor of Education to expand the work she’d already begun—and chose Argosy University, Chicago because of its reputation and location. “I wanted to expand my reach and become an expert in what I do,” she said. Searcy added that Argosy University, Chicago provided the customized focus she needed to meet her career goals. Her dissertation topic was “Challenging Behaviors.”

 

Searcy mentioned that students need to push themselves to balance schoolwork, a career, and life. When she was busy as a student, she focused on thinking, “’If I did that, I can do this.’ Every person is extraordinary. I am no different than anyone else.” She added that she was a mom of four children when she began her studies. Searcy credits the support of her family and instructors with helping her to succeed—especially when her own mother fell ill. “I was in statistics and was overwhelmed,” she stated. “But I communicated to my faculty and didn’t miss any assignments. The process was exhausting but I was very focused.”
