I am an teacher, online instructor, instructional designer, wife and mother from Virginia. I am currently a 5th grade teacher for Virginia Virtual Academy, an online adjunct college instructor at The University of Virginia's College at Wise/CTE, an co-leader and assistant coordinator of PoP 'PD. Since 2014, my passion for instructional design, curriculum development, EdTech, technology training and working with educators led me down a new and exciting career path that I am thoroughly enjoying. Before embarking on this new and exciting adventure, I taught for 14 years as an elementary school teacher for Wise County Public Schools.
