Twenty-eight years of experience in education, the last fifteen as an Instructional Technology Specialist providing technical and instructional support to teachers, administrators, support personnel and students. I was employed for five years as an Instructional Technologist with the Georgia Department of Education at one of their thirteen regional Educational Technology Training Centers. During this time I had the opportunity to work with in-service teachers and administrators of diverse backgrounds and all levels of technology use. I participated in the collaborative efforts in writing the state-wide InTech curriculum at the high school level, the development and delivery of professional learning opportunities for K-12 educators, provided technical support for our center, served as a technical and instructional resource person for nineteen school districts within our service region and was a regular presenter at state conferences. I am currently in my eighth year as an Instructional Technology Specialist for Jackson County School System. I have led efforts to increase the use of technology in and out of the classroom and have provided technical and instructional support for software and hardware throughout our system.
