I am the computer teacher in a K-8 private school in northeastern Ohio. I have 5 classes everyday. Most classes average 60 minutes. However, kindergarten class is 30 minutes in length. Yes, I teach kindergarten how to use computers! Every year, the children come into school even more knowledgeable than the previous year's students. I am determined to stay ahead of my students and to bridge the gap between old and new.

I also maintain all of the school's computers, (over 100) as well as the server. I even moderate the Computer Club. I love to help the teachers incorporate technology into their curriculum. I have been told that I make it look so easy!

Everyday is an adventure either with the students or with the equipment. I really love going to work everyday!
