I became a official geek when I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from USC (go Gamecocks). I am a National Board certified teacher and this is my 26th year teaching. I am passionate about teaching first grade becuase I love teaching children to read. I would like to expand my horizons to also teach online courses. My favorite children’s book is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I hope to one day visit Australia!
