I taught third and fourth grade for five years before becoming an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher; now I work with grades K-5. I have been in this position for the last six years. I love working with teachers and helping them to integrate technology into their classroom. The BEST part of this job is seeing the joy on students' faces when they finally "get it!"
I am very much a student-centered proponent! Students need ample opportunities to make mistakes and try again!
2019 VSTE Tech Coach of the Year!
I am currently working on my doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction with hopes of defending my dissertation in 2020.
I am also a VEGAN!
