I have been involved in the educational arena for 26 years. I have had the privilege to be an elementary and middle school teacher, charter school developer and administrator, categorical director, consultant for Harcourt School Publishers, County Office of Ed. consultant in EdTech, and Special Projects Coordinator for Fresno Pacific University.
I am currently pursuing teaching online professional development courses that empower educators to grow in their craft as well as use internet tools for effective instruction. Creating, producing, and directing educational programs for k-8 classrooms using live interactive videoconferencing.
