I've been an educator for 15 years. At the beginning of my teaching career, I worked with students in special education programs spanning the K-4 range, teaching all subjects, supporting my students in general classrooms, and utilizing a creative project based approach. After 10 years working with younger students, I made the shift up to middle school (grades 5-8) and followed my passion for all things technological. I was lucky enough to be able to introduce a computer science curriculum in our school, focusing on the basics of programming, digital citizenship, 3D design/printing, and using software/hardware such as Apple applications (on computers and iPads) and Chromebook and Google apps. When not in the classroom, I enjoy taking photographs and creating art, trips to Disney World, spending time at my camp on a lovely Maine lake, reading, and hanging out with my family.
