Summary

"Work Smarter, Not Harder"  is my motto & focus when approaching any project.

My strength is implementation, my passion is teaching the latest Technology, iSTEAM and Educational Technology Integration concepts to all ages and skill levels. 

My position in a private school demands that I wear many hats, Computer Science Teacher, Technology Integration Specialist, Google Apps Administrator, Network Administrator, Helpdesk Support, Curriculum Designer, Purchase Agent and Grant Writer to name a few. Working with limited resources in a small private school has allowed me to broaden my skill set.

I have found that having a knack for multitasking, communication, and determination are very valuable in this environment and I have finely honed these skills through my many experiences.
