I worked with TIE in July 2010 to 2017 as an Education Technology Specialist. Prior to that, I spent 11 years at North Middle School in Rapid City – eight as a computer teacher and three as an 8th grade English teacher. In 2007, I completed my Master’s Degree from the University of South Dakota in Technology in Education and Training.  Also in 2007, I was the recipient of the Milken award and in 2008 I achieved National Board Certification. I am Google Apps Certified and was a Google Glass Explorer. I am passionate about technology integration and truly believe education should reflect teaching our 21st century students with the 21st century skills they are going to need in this world. I believes that customized/personalized learning is not only "inevitable," but essential to improving the education system and giving our students the best education possible!

I am now venturing into my own consulting business with one of my main clients being Discovery Education. I am available to work with your staff on a variety of topics as well as keynote!
