Background

Summary

I completed a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Technology from Our Lady of the Lake University in December 2008. I have taught 7th Math and Pre-Algebra for the past four years and have certifications in elementary education, middle school mathematics, and all-level English/Language Arts.

I am eager to integrate technology and literacy into the everyday middle school curriculum while motivating students with unique real-world lessons and tailored activities.

I am dedicated to being the model of life-long learning for my students and staff.

I am currently living my dream of designing curriculum for an educational corporation.

Specialties:Experienced Computer Educator: I have years of experience in curriculum design and the use of peripheral educational devices (e.g. tablet PC, Activboard, Activote, scanner, LCD projector, digital microscope, digital camera and camcorder, programmable robots) and educational software.

I have designed and presented technology training at district, regional, and state conventions and conferences.

- "Student Created Books on the iPad". This was a collaborative effort between myself and Yolanda Barker (my former colleague for NEISD).

It is intended to support teachers through the process of exploring book creation apps (not necessarily iBooks Author) and utilizing them to create a curricular project with your students. It also includes a book matrix.
