I'm an Instructional Facilitator within the Office of Instructional Technology for Howard County Public Schools. Prior to joining HCPSS, I worked as an Instructional Technology Specialist for the Maryland State Department of Education where I managed the Maryland Virtual School (MVS) program. MVS provides opportunities for Maryland public school students to supplement their traditional instructional program by completing online courses. I also assisted school systems with strategic planning and implementation of local online learning programs. Related experiences include designing and leading professional development focusing on technology integration, teaching online courses, designing online content, mentoring online instructors, and facilitating online professional learning communities. Before working with MSDE (5 years), I worked as a high school science teacher (7 years) and a district-level technology specialist (2 years).
