Case Study


I have worked as an independent consultant for McGraw-Hill Education since 2014, doing work in several departments.


From 2014-2017, I managed an online community of teachers for the Professional Development department. I also performed content writing and editing for this department.

From 2015-2018, I performed content development work for the Sales department, creating courses and designing assessments for their educational consultants within the Desire2Learn / BrightSpace LMS. I continue to manage a small team of content developers within the Sales team.

Since 2017, I have worked with their Redbird Professional Learning team to provide analytical data reports to school districts throughout the country.


I performed many tasks for the Sales Team in my three-year tenure with that department, including development of a Professional Learning Environment for educational consultants both within McGraw-Hill and for consultants working in the UAE.

Per the client’s request, I developed a SurveyMonkey survey to be given to customers to rate the educational consultants’ performance in the field. I created an Access database with custom reports to track the survey results (see left; name has been removed). I continue to maintain updates to the survey reporting system as needed.


Valarie has worked on a variety of projects, all of which she has completed in an exemplary manner, delivering high quality content according to agreed-upon schedules, as well as adhering to all project requirements and budget. Valarie is a creative and strategic thinker, and is highly organized. She excels at timely and effective communication and displays excellent judgement. I recommend her wholeheartedly for content development work.
