Re-transplant to the Midwest (Great Plains to be uber-geo-technical!). I originally grew up in South Dakota–moved to Arizona (see below)–and now reside in Kansas in a little town right outside of Wichita. Little town living, with big city doings!
I previously taught in a very traditional setting (see below). I am embarking on a new endeavor (for me). I have been teaching at a charter high school that believes in non-traditional approaches to education. We use project based learning, an emphasis on 21st century skills, and Web 2.0 tools to help students who cannot or do not want to attend a traditional school setting. We mix virtual learning with real time support and face-to-face learning.
I am excited!

I teach at a small charter school in Kansas. We use Project Based Learning (PBL) to guide students through their high school experience.
High School teacher in Southwestern Arizona.
The 2008-2009 school year was my sixth year teaching. I taught a combined AP US history/Honors American Literature class & an AP US Government class. This combined two of my passions into one! My students found it to be an intriguing class and wished they had more like it.
Love to: Spend time with my daughters, read, write, watch movies, and listen to all kinds of music.
Hate to: GRADE papers!
Wish for: A summer vacation that lasts three whole months and that I can spend abroad.
Want: To be compensated for what I am worth.
Need: Time, time, and more time.
