I am hardly a reluctant technology user -- I love it (warts and all)! I enthusiastically (and sometimes cautiously) approach educational technology and wonder at all the innovations that have happened in just the last 10 years.
In school I thought I wanted to be a lawyer, but took a hard left turn into a field that seemed to be bursting at the seams with futuristic inventions--I admit the nerd in me was smitten! Though DOS was still the operating system, amber was the new color monitor, and keystrokes ruled (no mouse, thank you)--it was exciting. Ultimately, it was sharing that excitement that drove me down the path to education.
For the last 14 years, I have been teaching technology in a K-8 school. I love my job! I also love to share everything I learn with my students and my colleagues (or anyone who will listen for that matter). Another part of my job is troubleshooting hardware/software problems, offering Professional Development in Technology Integration, and generally acting as the Tech Geek on Campus. It is a dream job!
I hope this blog will allow me to share my passion on a broader scale-- as well as meet others who also feel the way I do!
