I love learning and teaching. I've been an educator for 18 years with experience as an elementary teacher, reading specialiat and curriculum developer for an educational software company. My Elementary Education degree is from Loyola University in New Orleans and my Masters in Reading is from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. I also hold National Board Certification in Reading/Language Arts Early through Middle Childhood. But those are just the boring statistics. At home, I enjoy baking everything from cookies to elaborate pastries and reading. As a teacher and a learner, using technology and the virtual environment is exciting and I'm happy to be a part of it.
