I knew at a young age that I would one day become a teacher, so after time spent as a code breaker in the Army and studying history and political science at UCLA, I decided to fulfill my dream and teach high school social studies. I taught for five years in a charter school in downtown Los Angeles, and then found such great fulfillment in supporting teachers that I became a media specialist in the Las Virgenes Unified School District. I naturally gravitated towards technology and consider my greatest technological feat as teaching my grandmother to email. My curiosity and desire to grow led me to earn a Master’s in Education Leadership and to regularly attend conferences or gatherings of other learners. Not your typical native Valley Girl from Southern California, I prefer the outdoors and reading, to shopping malls and matching purses (though I love a great thrift shop!).
