So, Who's the New Girl?
Career surveys. Interest surveys. Strength surveys. Every time I take one of these, I get the same result. I should be working with people, helping people, teaching people. I’m a people person, it doesn’t matter what age--I like helping people. This is one of the reasons why I am thrilled to be in my new position. I’m going to get to help people of ALL ages---teachers, students, administrators. Every day will be a different day-what a challenge, what an adventure-and I can’t wait to start.
So, how did I get here? Here is the modified version. I taught business education for the last 16 years. Fourteen of those years have been at Bellevue West. I have a Bachelor’s in Business Education and a Master’s in Instructional Technology. Along with my teaching responsibilities, I served as the department chair for the business department, I have been on the Bellevue West tech team since it’s implementation, and I was a member of the iPad Academy. I love to read, golf, grab a cup of coffee with friends and spend time with my family. I can sometimes be known as a fanatic for the Huskers, Packers and Tar Heels.
I’m often asked what role I think technology plays in education. I believe technology can be used to transform the classroom experience, extend the classroom walls, provide opportunities that otherwise wouldn’t be there and help give all students a creative voice. It will NEVER replace great teachers, who provide a supportive, challenging and engaging environment. Taking advantage of both, technology and great teachers, will provide an amazing experience for our students. If you don’t feel comfortable with technology, we are here to help. If you feel comfortable, we are here to help you go a step further. I look forward to working with all of you in the upcoming years.
And Go Big Red!
