After an exciting career in education, specifically Instructional technology, it is wonderful to have opportunities to stay involved in various grants and projects as an Independent EdTech Consultant and Coach.

I have been involved with the ACSE grant serving as a VSTE Coach beginning in 2020, promoting teacher-created performance-based tasks integrating Computer Science Standards into the curriculum for grades 3-8. Please visit #GoOpenVA to see these excellent performance tasks created by ACSE region 3 liaisons.

I continue to provide professional learning for VIrtual Virginia as a Professional Learning Facilitator. Please follow this link for the latest free recertification courses for Virginia Public School educators. VDOE/Virtual Virginia Professional Learning Courses

As a VASCD Micro-Credential Assessor, I have the opportunity to provide feedback to educators throughout Virginia as they determine how to implement various strategies in their classrooms and provide evidence to earn a micro-credential. Please view the list of VASCD 2022-2023 Micro-Credentials available.
