    A little about me:

    "Once you're done, you've just begun!"  My 5th graders heard me say this so often that they started saying it to me about my own work.  The truth in that statement is reflected in the milestones in my life so far.

    My love of Star Wars began my interest in all things "techie", "geeky", and "nerdy".  Watching the imagination of what life could be like with the use of technology sparked my journey into technology instruction and design.  Education and technology go hand in hand especially, when learning comes first.  My passions are to highlight opportunities for students to show their knowledge in ways that reflect his/her interests and ideas.  

    Balance is important to stay healthy, mentally and physically.  Camping, hiking, and working out keep me balanced.  This time gives me a chance to "unplug" and reflect.
