       Welcome constructionists to my corner!  This web site intent is to design something interesting enough for every learner and to deliver new information in an efficient and timely manner.  I hope you find the links, text, documents, information, and high interest web sites informational.  My blueprint of lifelong learning consists of uniqueness, arts and tech enthusiast, tenacity, an ongoing love for learning, and a love for teaching and coaching; which have led me to complete the following endorsements of History, Social Studies, Humanity, Special Education and a Washington State Professional Certification Certificate.  Also, I earned my MS Degree at Walden University with a concentration of: Integrating Technology into the Classroom K-12th. This Masters of Science Degree has led to a positive perspective on technology, collaboration within my working world and life, and how technology offers additional assistance to anyone who needs it.   I also have over ten years of work experience as a Juvenile Detention Officer II for Pierce County Juvenile Courts Tacoma Washington.  I have taught adult basic education (GED) at Tacoma Community College and I am an adjunct professor at Saint Martin University teaching ED/MED adult student teacher candidates "Arts and Movement Methods" courses.  I am part of the Mt Tahoma online summer school teaching staff for Edgenuity.  I coach Mount Tahoma HS girls softball/fastpitch.  Lastly, I will continue to expand my classroom pedagogy to connect with my students, parents, colleagues and our community.
