“Believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.”
- Steve Jobs
A Little bit More about me...
My biggest accomplishment in life is my family! I have two amazing boys who keep me busy and a fantastic husband who keeps me sane! Izzy is our adopted dog and has brought so much joy to our lives. I highly recommend pet adoption. We live in the southern part of Greenwood in Center Grove. I have been in education for over 26 years. During that time I have been a teacher, educational instructional specialist, distance learning coordinator, consultant, and trainer. I am currently the Director of Online Curriculum & Technology with the Indiana Online Academy. I love working with teachers and sharing my passion for education, In January 2014, I launched the CIESC Technology Leadership Certification (#ciesctlc) with 34 in the first cohort. I was also asked to join the eLearning Leadership Cadre for the Indiana Department of Education. All of these experiences have helped me to evolve into the educator I am today!
