"Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge" ~ Plato
I have been in the education field for over 24 years. An early adopter of technology, never a manual reader, but always ready to embrace a challenge and move the needle from ideas to action.
I am currently trying my hand in the entrepreneurial arena as a learning technologies consultant. A former educator with deep roots in the field, I work with school customers applying my knowledge and expertise of education trends and technology applications (hardware & software) while evaluating current practices, technology initiatives while understanding and appreciating future goals. I provide coaching, mentoring and training opportunities establishing strong, trusting relationships.
As an award winning researcher and doctoral candidate, I am currently seeking to apply my understanding and dig deeper into the learning affordances of the modern day technological sandbox.
I used to think that I was an 'out of the box' thinker, but then one day, it dawned on me... "why does there even have to be a box?". I find my people are those who cultivate my own innate curiosity, instigate change and move in a pattern of changing behaviors.
This portfolio synthesizes and offers a lens, evidence of my scholarship, depth and breadth of who I am, reviewing my research interests, coursework examples and records of achievement.
