After twenty five years in a hospital laboratory as a licensed Medical Technician I returned to college to earn a M. Ed. from Ohio State University to teach middle school math and science. I am so excited about the new innovations and technologies classrooms have embraced to better prepare students for the 21st Century. I am learning to use Moodle, Adobe Creative Suite, and other computer programming endeavors. I am interested in how online video games and social networks open social/constructivist learning communities.
