About Me

I have been working full-time as an educator since 1998 with Computer Science and Technology Integration as a focus since 2000. I have taught at all levels in K-12 environments over the course of my career. In my current teaching assignment, I am leading Grade 11 and 12 schools to create, explore and innovate using Communication Technology tools. I also taught courses in History at the senior level with the goal of using technology as one powerful tool to explore, learn about and empathize with individuals from the past.

I am a lifelong learner, keen to explore new pedagogies and strategies to aid anytime, anywhere learning and collaborations with others. In July 2017, I completed my Masters in Education and Digital Technology which helped extend my PLN and allowed me to pursue academic goals and explore new ways to support my students. Tools like Coursea, and other MOOCs, provide excellent opportunities for self-directed learning and I have completed courses in Indigenous Canada (University of Alberta) and ICT in Primary Education (University of London)

I have earned certifications as a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (2018-2019), Certified Digital Citizenship Educator and Ed Tech Mentor (since 2014), Google Educator (2014), SMART Exemplary Educator ( since 2012). I am currently exploring tutorials and certification options at the Adobe Education Exchange.

For the last ten years, I have also led professional development opportunities and spoke at conferences using a variety of Microsoft and Google educational technology, working in 1:1 environment with tablets (Microsoft Surface Pros), teaching and learning in a blended and online environments using software like Edsby and Blackboard, using iPads to aid learning, using Scratch and other programming tools to celebrate student creativity and success.

Each day working as an educator is a gift. I enjoy the challenge of aiding students and colleagues to learn, explore and succeed in the classroom or anywhere. Technology offers the potential for exploring and learning but is most exciting to me when used to create, share and help others.

I am a lifelong learner, keen to explore new pedagogies and strategies to aid anytime, anywhere learning and collaborations with others. My recent interests are computational thinking, programming, blended and online learning, flipped learning, mobile technology, game based learning, digital photography, eportfolios, social media, blogging, digital citizenship, digital media and digital storytelling. (Wow, that is a lot of digital terms! However, good pedagogy and learning has to come first.)

I seek formal (academic) and informal (MOOC's, social media...) learning opportunities to continue my journey as both an educator and global citizen.
