Bio:
I reinvented myself at 50. My previous trade was 'Printer' (small offset) and I was techno-phobic when I walked in the doors of Pierce College in Lakewood, WA., looking for a Photoshop class. I became the LMS Admin and Instructional Tech Support for Pierce College District, utilizing Canvas since 2012, and Angel and Blackboard before that. For fun, I take road trips on my Harley Super Glide Custom, and I'm slowly doing a complete 'refit' of my 37' sailing ketch, with plans of exploring Puget Sound, and then harbor hopping my way down the West Coast to Mazatlan to explore the Sea of Cortez. Soon, I'll be sailing off into the sunset, headed for tropical shores, playing Jimmy Buffet songs and working my battery powered blender overtime... Ha! ;>)

Our faculty would never go for full-on template use, so... guidance, demonstration and education meets with a lot less resistance.
