A little bit about me...this is my 14th year teaching elementary school. I have a Masters degree in Curriculum & Instructional Leadership. Did I mention that I have a lot of passion for teaching technology? I grew up in Louisville, KY and moved to New Mexico in 1999. In addition to learning about educational technologies, I also enjoy mountain biking, hiking, camping, gardening, photography, and traveling.

Please stop by the technology lab when you have the opportunity, I really enjoy meeting parents and discussing the work we are doing in the lab. You can also send me a message by clicking on my name.
