I am an HSE Literacy and ABE Instructor, PD Trainer, Tech Integration Coach, and soon to be the Distance Learning Director for the Literacy Council of Tyler. I started as a volunteer five years ago, and immediately fell in love with adult education, so I became a teacher within a matter of months. Shortly there after, I pursued a second M.S. in Teaching and Learning, with a Concentration in Teacher Leadership. I teach all HSE subjects in addition to computer literacy. I also train other adult educators on techniques for teaching GED subjects and integrating technology into the classroom.
I am extremely passionate about two things: technology and teaching adults. I LOVE technology and I think it is critical that students be as comfortable with technology as possible as we proceed into the 21st century. More importantly, however, I think it is important for teachers to grasp the concept of integrating technology into their instruction.
