The Corette Library is also the venue for the annual MountainMoot, where I am honored to be Chief Mootineer. I'm also on the Board of Directors of NWMET, the Planning Committee for XLi 2015, and the Program Committee of MoodleMoot US 2015. I have been a presenter at a handful of other conferences and trainings.
I spent four years as an eighth grade Communication Arts teacher with East Helena Public Schools, where I ran a paperless classroom as part of their 1:1 iPad initiative using MyBigCampus, Google Apps, Nearpod, Educreations, Powerschool, and a few other fun apps. I developed and deployed a common-core aligned curriculum and gradebook that helped identify and offer differentiated support to individual learners in discreet common-core strands. Some of my students may remember weeksheets, the color-number system, and the grammar game as well.
I have a B.A. with a major in English Literature and minor in Creative Writing from UNC, Chapel Hill and an M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction from MSU, Bozeman.
