Hello and welcome! I’m so happy to share my work, passions, and family with you.
In my mid-twenties, I had a bit of a career crisis. I hadn’t finished college, I was working in an after-school program and as a special ed assistant and I was more than bored. It was fun to work with kids, but there was very little creativity in my roles.
Finally, a position opened up at the school I was working (Alderwood Basics Plus) and the principal asked if I was interested in teaching their computer program. He had a vision of recreating the curriculum surrounding the lab which previously focused on typing programs and educational games like Oregon Trail. For 2001, having a lab which taught elementary students how to build computers, code in HTML, and the full suite of Office products was cutting edge.
