Dr. Wynn joined the Olivet faculty in the Learning Behavior Specialist I program after nearly 20 years as a professor of education at Indiana Wesleyan University. She has taught both graduate and undergraduate courses, including supervising student teaching, served on doctoral dissertation committees, and spent several years as an Assistant Director for the M.Ed. program. While at IWU, she wrote dozens of courses, both online and onsite, and several handbooks, guides, and policy manuals to support educational programs.  Before becoming a professor, Dr. Wynn was a P-12 classroom teacher for general education and special education, and served as a building principal and central office administrator. She also spent three years traveling the country as a national education consultant for an international think tank based in Washington, D.C., where she interacted with the U.S. Department of Education and the National Governor’s Association.

Dr. Wynn has been a keynote speaker and session presenter at state, regional, and national education conferences for over 25 years, and has published two textbooks in addition to providing several chapters in other college texts. She is currently writing a series of differentiated instruction books for home educators as part of her work as the President and founder of the nonprofit International Christian Education Foundation. That foundation provides customized curricula for various Christian organizations and individuals. Assessment methods, instructional strategies, and accreditation are her specialty areas, although she is keenly interested in early childhood education as well.

Dr. Wynn and her husband of 45 years have three married children and six grandchildren. She enjoys both hand and machine quilting, and traveling to see friends and family. Visiting historical spots is an especially enjoyable activity.
