Tell us a bit about yourself

"Inquisitive" and "thorough" are two words that colleagues use to describe me. I grew up in a science household. My father is one of the world's preeminent toxicologists, so science was always in the background. Hence the inquisitiveness and mind for details. I studied Geology in college, in addition to French and Fine Arts. Volcanoes and Earthquakes and Extra-terrestrial Geology were among my favorite classes. While teaching in Guatemala, I had the opportunity to teach 4th grade science and had a blast. In Austin, I used to teach mathematics, frequently working in cross-curricular themes.

Why are you interested in education technology?

This is the information age, and I am an educator. Need I say more? I actually had the intention to complete a dual master's degree in Language Education and Educational Technology, and fairly well completed the latter in an informal manner while I was completing my MS in education entirely via distance from Indiana University while I was living in Korea. I became intimately familiar with distance education and modes of delivery, in addition to computer assisted language learning. And that's my story!
