I have been teaching online for the last eight years at a blended learning program in Nevada. I have a M.Ed in Education Technology from Boise State and was able to work with several great researchers in the field of online education. I have been presenting on Social Media and Online Learning for the last 5 years. My goal is always to learn more and make my classes more unique.
