Teaching and learning with K-12 students started the journey. My students helped plan our path and produced some amazing evidence of learning - some of which I still have in my possession. I'm continuously proud of the work we did together.
Actively working the instructional design process from bottom to top and back again to ensure innovation is a sure-fire way to get me so focused that I forget to eat. Watching it come together is an amazing thing.
Working with other educators to implement educational technology tools (including teaming with educators working via satellite) into their content delivery taught me amazing amounts about the importance of collaboration for both learning and innovation.
The puzzles and academic challenges that come with leadership in content development and delivery is a love of mine and has been for almost 20 years. I've also learned how to make and work in a lean, mean budget spreadsheet!
Of all of the roles I've played, I've been a mom for the least amount of time. It's also proving to be the hardest one of all.
