Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you find it helpful. I currently teach 4th grade reading and language arts. I also work with educators providing technology integration support. I'm passionate about preparing our students for the future now. I love all kinds of technology (just ask my kids), but my primary interests are SMART Boards, iPads, and Web 2.0 tools.
I graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University and have been in education for 20 years. I have taught special education, tech education, language arts, science, and several other subjects in between. I have worked with students in grades 2nd through 8th in both Oklahoma and Arkansas. I have been a presenter at Hot Springs Technology Institute in Hot Springs, AR, Schools without Walls Technology, Curriculum, and Common Core Leadership Conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas and Podstock, a technology conference, in Wichita, KS. Additionally I have provided technology staff development for several school districts in southwest Arkansas.
Last March I married the love of my life, Robert. I'm also the proud mother of two amazing girls that I had the privilege of adopting 10 years ago. My oldest is Elizabeth, she is 23. My youngest is Matea, she is 20. Additionally, I have two dogs named Spike and Max, and a guinea pig named Pepper. Besides teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, playing video games, and shopping.
