Ann Stewart joins Advisory Network

MBA Research is pleased to welcome Dr. Ann Stewart to the Teacher Advisory Network (TAN). After 25 years in the high-tech industry, Dr. Stewart turned her attention to education and hasn’t looked back. As a Marketing & Entrepreneurship teacher, Stewart facilitated the development and opening of the first full service in-school coffee shop, Sketch It Up, in the district and the first high school business to have full membership in the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. As the CTE Department Chair at Stewarts Creek High School (TN), she is the Director of the Entrepreneurship Center for the school, a four-year entrepreneurship curriculum for non-marketing students, and is developing the curriculum in conjunction with Dr. Maria Edlin at Middle Tennessee State University for the four-year program. As the lead DECA Advisory, Stewart heads Stewarts Creek Marketplace, a shopping center in the school that includes the Creekside Coffee Shop, Stewarts Creek Design (print shop), Creekside Bank, and Hawk's Nest Bookstore.

Dr. Stewart has been a DECA advisor for twelve years. She has had many students place in the Top 10 and Top 20 at DECA's International Career Development Conferences (ICDC), and has even had 1st - 3rd place winners. At Nashville's 2016 ICDC, Dr. Stewart presented, "DECA Goes Lean," for new advisors. The project based learning presentation introduced the new Lean Business Model, now used in many DECA written events, to advisors and gave them active lessons to take back to the classroom. Dr. Stewart received her doctorate from Tennessee State University in 2013 with a dissertation entitled A Mixed Methods Study of Service Learning in a Public High School
