Welcome to my wiki! It is where I store the professional development presentations I have given, as well as links to the other wikis I have been a contributor to.
I am currently a Computer Applications teacher at a Junior High School in Illinois. Prior to this, I was a Technology Teacher at a Junior High School. I
developed standards based curriculum and assessment tools and provided classroom instruction for grades 6, 7, and 8 in Keyboarding Techniques, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Internet Safety, Beginning Programming, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Fireworks, and Macromedia Flash. I also collaborated with Language Arts Department to implement the use of Web 2.0 technologies (wikis and nings) on two major student projects. Revisions resulted in more engaged students and higher quality projects than in previous years.
I am conversant in both Mac and Windows platforms.
