Bridging the Digital Divide One Byte at a Time
DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT ADVOCATE
I’m a mom, a teacher, and an artist whose interest in technology started the day I made a personal communicator from binder paper and became Lt. Uhura on the playground. By day, I serve as a Technology Instructional Specialist in a Pre K-12 school system, with the main focus of administering the student data and test-generating system. I also teach computer applications, working primarily with multimedia and productivity programs, including Google Apps in Education, MS Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and any other high-energy program thrown in my direction. On nights and weekends, I shoot with a Canon – camera that is. Photography allows me to live in the creative world and reset my mind for the workweek. When I’m not taking pictures, developing content for my website allows me to fine-tune my tech superpowers.
