Meet Charice Hayes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Charice Hayes.

Hi Charice, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I grew up in West Baltimore most of my life. A good portion of my childhood was being raised by a single mother. I generally excelled in school. Being a teenage mother, I was still able to graduate Baltimore City College high school with a B average and go to Morgan State University. At Morgan State University, I majored in Spanish and minored in Psychology. My top career goal was to become an interpreter/translator and travel the world. However, I had young children, so I tried my second career goal… teaching. I found out that teaching was my true calling. Over the years, I have taught middle school, high school, and college students.

During those years, after graduating from Morgan State University, I was able to earn a master’s and a doctorate. Just one year after earning a master’s in Higher Education, in 2010, I entered a doctoral business program. The same year that I entered the doctoral business program, I started an education business. I watch my business grow from one employee (myself) to several employees. My business also grew to include consulting, research, and training.

I finished my business doctorate in 2016. From 2011 to 2016, I was running a business in school, teaching part-time, and engaging in my personal life. In 2018, I have joined Baltimore City Community College as a business professor. This was an exceptional opportunity to have because not only was I bringing theoretical knowledge but practical knowledge as well. Also, being at the College showcased my story and how I succeeded to students who can relate.

My business, All 4 One Learning Solutions, helps K-12 principals, parents of school-aged children, colleges, community organizations, and corporations navigate the complexities of improving 21st-century skills, educational skills gap, programs, and instructional design. Helping others succeed was always my destiny.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Well, being a teenage and young mom was a struggle. I worked while going to school full-time. However, I was able to push through. Being a young mother made me a responsible person. I had no choice.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a business owner and college professor. I teach business courses and run an educational, consulting, research, and training company. I am known for my business and higher education knowledge. I am proud that I help students and my colleagues succeed. Starting off with being a teacher, then a college professor, a researcher, and a business owner allowed others to see the value in me and my contributions.

What matters most to you?
I like helping others. Helping others be the best that they can be is rewarding. It is rewarding because I feel I am helping society move closer to positive social change.
