I currently teach students enrolled in CIS courses at Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, IL. I teach a wide variety of courses, but mostly software and productivity courses. Previously to that, I was the director of the college's instructional design department where I supervised the implementation of Canvas on our campus as faculty migrated courses from Moodle to Canvas. (As well as many other projects.) Previous to that, I was employed in a rural k-12 school district where I taught 3rd grade, 5th grade, 8th Grade social science, and computer technology. (Small school district teachers have to be versatile!) I have a Master in Educational Technology degree from Pepperdine University. I completed a Bachelor of Education degree at Illinois State University.
