Michelle K.'s Profile

About Me

When Michelle was a middle school math and science teacher, the one computer with web access lived in the library -- and so she lived there, too. Fascinated by the Internet's potential for good (and evil), she taught her students basic HTML and how to judge websites, even though it wasn't on the state test. Now she designs award-winning online content for K12, Inc. Michelle lives in Richmond, Virginia, where she's a triathlete and volunteers with the Positive Vibe Foundation training people with disabilities for employment. She's a trivia junkie which has led to some success on the national stage; she appeared on two game shows: Weakest Link (which she won) and Grand Slam (which she didn't -- she lost to Jeopardy!'s Ken Jennings). She is a fan of television both old and new, for children and adults (Arthur, Mad Men, Happy Days, Sesame Street, and The Big Bang Theory) and her dream is to write for a kids' show.
