The purpose of my Ed Tech site is to share my learning as I take educational technology classes at Michigan State University and as I embark on my new position of Technology Coach at my high school.
I have just completed my 13th year of teaching and it amazes me on how far my teaching has come. However, I am equally amazed at how much more there is to learn! During my 13 years of teaching, I have taught biology, AP Biology, chemistry, physical science, and criminalistics in public, private and homeschool/online settings. Sometimes technology was available while other times it wasn’t an option. During this time I also completed a Masters in Educational Policy and Leadership from Marquette University. Although this education helped shape my teaching, over the past few years I have developed a passion for using technology to increase student understanding. Although technology can be used numerous ways, I have developed a special interest in how technology can be used to create a personalized learning environment for each student. It is my hope that I can make this interest a reality. Welcome to my journey!
