I am an elementary school teacher with over fifteen years of teaching experience.  I have taught first grade as well as technology at Mantua Township School District.  I am a passionate teacher with a love of educational technology.  In addition to my regular teaching duties, I have also organized several after school clubs for students, including iPad video production and computer programming.

I am a Google Certified Teacher, and a Google Apps Qualified Individual.  While my first love is teaching children, I have also discovered a passion for teaching other educators, and have presented at many state level conferences.  I have also been a member of the planning committee for several educational conferences, including St. Hacktrick’s Day – A Google Apps Scripts for Education Hackathon, which was organized in conjunction with Google staff, edcamp STEAM – an edcamp focussed on integrating the Arts into STEM education, and also edcamp Philly.  I am also a contracted presenter with BER and present nationally at educational seminars.
