About Me

I love technology! I started working with computers in 1989. I enjoy working with elementary aged children and teaching them technology.  I love what I do! 

I started our school Tech Club almost 6 years ago with 4th and 5th grade students. In 2011, we added 3rd grade students to the club! Our projects have grown and we are very exciting to exhibit our work at the 6th Annual HCS Technology Fair to be held in April of 2015. I have been at Lakewood the past 12 years after moving here from Connecticut. 

For my first 10 years, I was designer, creator and Editor for Lakewood's annual yearbook. I love graphic design - and I share that knowledge with my students. 

Going into my 3rd year as Head Coach for an FLL Lego Robotic League here at Lakewood, I decided to trade that off to some other teachers so I could steer up our first "Student Tech Team".  These students are trained to do basic technology troubleshooting and will be trained to help with the 500+ personal digital learning devices we will be receiving in the upcoming school year.  We have named them the "Bobcat Geek Squad".

During the school day, I teach 6 classes (CD, K - 5). They learn Microsoft software and basic keyboarding. 2nd through 5th learn keyboarding, Microsoft Word while 4th-5th learn MS Publisher, MS Powerpoint and basic graphic design. Pre-K through 1st grade learn basic keyboarding skills and how to navigate the menu to open up various apps. 

Lastly, Technology Geek - that's me! Somehow, during my day, I also perform service calls for the teachers and staff. Talk about a diverse career.... Its what I love!
