Born in Holland, Genevieve Koens came to the United States with plans to succeed in business, but a divorce changed everything. As a single mom, Genevieve decided to go back to college to pursue her passion for working with underprivileged children, something she did growing up in Holland.*
Genevieve chose Kaplan University because they accepted her previous college work and transferred the credits from the University of Holland.† With the help of her Kaplan University financial advisor, Genevieve was able to stay at home with her children while taking a full schedule of online courses. As a result, she earned her master’s degree in teaching in just 13 months and feels strongly that Kaplan University lead her to finding a new career working with children.‡
Today Genevieve teaches the students at Orange Morris Middle School how to prepare for and use evolving technology. She uses skills she learned at Kaplan University to excite and motivate her students. Genevieve believes it’s important to build a rapport and working relationship with her students so they can achieve their true potential.
Changing her career plans has improved the quality of Genevieve’s life tremendously. She hopes to make a big difference in the lives of children. In her words, preventing just one child from going down the wrong path “would be amazing.”§
