About Carolyn Devane
Carolyn Devane taught ACT classes to students for 13 years in two large high schools in Kansas: Mill Valley High School and Manhattan High School. After witnessing the significant improvements and positive results of her students, Carolyn started offering her courses to students in other high schools in 2009. Since that time, PowerPrep's classes have grown from being offered in just 2 high schools to offerings in not only many Kansas and Missouri high schools, but also in colleges and universities throughout Kansas.
Carolyn has 17 total years of ACT test-taking instruction experience with thousands of students. She also has 13 years' experience as a high school counselor and 6 years' experience as a high school English teacher, teaching College Now English, Senior English, Junior English, and Public Speaking. Her test-taking strategy classes provide students with practical test-taking strategies and insights into test questions and content with amazing student results.
In 2011, Carolyn began offering professional development to high school teachers. She provides teachers with resources and training to equip them to prepare all students each day in the classroom for the kind of thinking the ACT requires. Carolyn’s training is dynamic and insightful with information schools need to help students develop the problem-solving, decision making, and evaluative thinking skills the ACT requires.
