I currently have 20 years experience teaching in the same school. I started out in 1993 teaching 3rd grade. After 4 years I was also asked to teach computers and technology to the whole K-5 while continuing to teach 3rd grade part time for the next 6 years. Due to budget cuts my technology job disappeared and I decided to begin working with 5th graders which I have done ever since.
I like to create learners who are interested, enthusiastic, and who aren't afraid to take chances, ask questions and make mistakes. I enjoy creating project based, cooperative learning opportunities that allow students to grow and be self-sufficient, life-long learners.
I have a couple of awards for designing our school web page as well as the web page for the town of Guadalupe, Arizona.

I enjoy making my own technology based teaching materials to help my students understand certain curricular concepts. I especially enjoy creating PowerPoint based instructional slide shows, activities and games.
