Andover eCademy Director
I love teaching students, but I also have a passion for teaching other educators. For the past 4 years, I have been the Instructional Technology Coach for Andover Public Schools. I provided over 50 different types of technology-related workshops for our Andover teachers and other educators in Kansas. I have also had the privilege to share my knowledge of technology integration during several local, state and national-level conferences, allowing me to reach hundreds of teachers, and indirectly, hundreds of students.
In addition to being part of the Andover eCademy staff, I am also an independent technology integration consultant, online instructor for Baker University, Creative Memories Consultant, and piano teacher for 6 students. I am also a wife to Aaron and a mother to two ornery kitties, Sampson and Kizmett. I definitely stay busy!
In my spare time, I love to scrapbook. I have a hobby room all to myself, complete with candy apple red walls and zebra-print accents. Aaron and I also enjoy traveling. We just returned from our 5-year anniversary vacation in Oahu. We were married on the beach in Maui and are hoping to celebrate each 5-year anniversary on a different Hawaiian island.
Being Director of Andover eCademy has proven to be a challenging, yet exciting endeavor. Meeting the students and families this summer has been the best part of my new job. I am eager to start the year, so......LET THE LEARNING BEGIN!
