Biography
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." - William Butler Yeats Since I started in education, this Yeats quote has had a special place in my life. I often learned the most from those teachers, who helped me find my path and passion, rather than lecturing or berating me. Over the years, I have worked to become the kind of teacher who inspires my students and leads by example. For over 30 years, I have been working in education in one form or another. One unique thing about my experiences would be that I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages from 5-70. I am looking forward to seeing what the next 20-25 years of my career have in store for me. I am an avid reader, writer, and photographer with a wonderful and supportive family. Currently I work as the technology and engineering education content advisor for curriculum, assessment, and instruction at the Pennsylvania Department of Education. I was an assistant professor at California University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Applied Engineering and Technology from August, 2008 until December, 2016.
