"Be the change you wish to see!" by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
I started my career in the field of education as an elementary classroom teacher for many years. While taking a few years off to start a family and move outside of the U.S. living as an expatriate in Amsterdam, U.K. and Dubai, UAE, I found myself using technology to communicate, share, and connect from all over the world. When I returned to the field of education, I did so on a new path of educational technology working as a technology integration coach at The American School of Dubai. Now, I am starting a new chapter as an Digital Learning Coach/Consultant at a new not for profit International I.B. school Halcyon School of London. I enjoy empowering teachers and students to teach and learn through technology. Originally I am from Chicago, I completed my undergraduate degree from Hope College in Holland Michigan, hold a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Minnesota and an Educational Technology Certificate from Michigan State University.
