1958 and raised in rural North Dakota, I loved spending time outdoors and finding quiet places to read. Two of my favorite places were in the quiet of a shelter belt (trees planted to keep soils from blowing out of fields) and near the top of a tall pine tree. After graduating from Carrington High School in 1977, I moved to Moorhead Minnesota and attended University of Minnesota, Moorhead formerly known as Moorhead State University.
In 1983, after earning my Bachelor's degree in English/Speech/Theatre Education, I moved to Parker, Arizona to teach Junior High English.
Since then I've enjoyed working in a variety of positions including teacher of high school English and communications, junior high computer skills, elementary and high school librarian, and instructional specialist.
In 2007, I earned a Master's degree in Educational Technology fromNorthern Arizona University and was selected by my peers and faculty as the 2007 NAU Educational Student of the Year. I currently enjoy working with teachers and students helping them access information through technology.
