I am the Grant Coordinator and Lead Teacher at Seven Oaks Elementary MEDIA Magnet School in Columbia, South Carolina. Seven Oaks is an inquiry-driven, project based, 1:1 school that also teaches through the themes of technology, media, and communications.
I have been integrating technology in the classroom and training teachers to embrace technology for over 16 years in my current role as well as in my former position as a technology integration specialist. I have created many resources for educators including Interactive Sites for Education which is used by thousands of elementary school children everyday. I am proud to be a Discovery Education Guru and a National Board Certified Teacher.

Here are the DEN Summer Institutes that I have attended:
