This is your personal user page in WikiEducator. Tell us a little about yourself ..... be bold and try an edit now by starting to fill out your user page. This is a great way to practice your new wiki skills :-).
I'm an Instructional Designer at a Community College just north of Nashville, TN. I'm originally from Chicago, IL and spent my first career in Hotel Food and Beverage Operations Management. In my job, I have the chance to work with faculty, play with new technology and also teach students about the hospitality industry. I'm also the systems administrator for our online course management system and our virtual classroom.
I have a B.A in History from DePaul University in Chicago and a MS in Education from CalState East Bay (formerly Hayword).
My professional interests include: new media (wiki's, blogs, Facebook, Twitter) and how to incorporate these elements into teaching and learning, exploring new applications, accessibility issues and all things Apple.
My personal interests and hobbies include: Rubber stamping, reading, and supporting my son in his pursuit to become a great tennis player. I enjoy traveling and have been to almost every state in the U.S and I'm planning to travel the world when I get a little wiser! I've also been a homeschooling parent for many years. My daughter is on her own now and my son is entering his junior year of high school while taking concurrent classes at the community college.
