About Me

My love affair with technology began at an early age with Reading Rabbit and other fantastically historic Machintosh educational games. My first personal computer was a Mac Performa that ran ClarisWorks, where I learned how to type stories and create primitive drawings. From then on, I used technology in every facet possible, and especially to enhance my learning. This passion for technology as tools and enhancements is what I brought to my classroom experience as a teacher.

I spent the last six years as an English teacher for Sanger High. I started out as an Intern, which speaks volumes about how I learn better in a hands-on environment. I started off teaching 9th and 10th grades, and eventually moved to the 12th grade level. My main focus as a senior teacher was to prepare my students not only for college, but for the world they will become part of soon, and that includes a heavy focus on technology integration.

Starting in the fall of 2014, I had the opportunity to sort of jump ship and become the Teacher Librarian for our school. Obviously, I will be overseeing the collection housed in our library, but my new role is heavily immersed in technology. The library houses three computer labs, and is looking to acquire more technology as our campus roles out its 1-to-1 implementation of iPad devices. I am the champion of Digital Citizenship on our campus, as well as a coach for teachers and students alike in this new world of technology.
