I am a back to the classroom teacher. I teach high school social studies and predominately AP Human Geography. I stepped out of the classroom for 10 years to work with teachers in technology. During those 10 years, most of the time was spent working in Richland School District Two developing the 1:1 computing program for students K-12.
I have enjoyed my time back in the classroom and in some cases I ask myself, why did I ever leave.

Outside of work
I am a maker. I craft and create to take my mind off everyday responsibilities and to learn. I play with paper. I sew. I cook. I paint. I use a hammer and nails. This tinkering has led to a small, tiny side business in my life called M.A.S.W. Designs.
