Previously, I was a High School teacher, served as a Technology Integration Facilitator, District Educational Technology Coordinator and State Educational Technology Director. I have over 20 years experience in education, bringing a classroom perspective to school improvement models, including best practices in research-based instructional strategies and technology integration. My doctorate degree is in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Program Evaluation. I currently direct the research and evaluation efforts of the Kansas Technology Rich Classroom Program and coordinate the Center’s NSF Grant for Middle School Game-Based Scientific Argumentation. I have presented at numerous local, regional and national conferences including, NSBA’s T+L, ISTE, NSDC, ASCD, and FETC.
