I have almost 20 years of teaching experience at the college level; I am an instructional designer and currently Coordinate a 3-person team designing and evaluating online courses; I am the mother of 3 children (10, 13, and 2), have an MA in Literature, an MS in Education Technology, and I’m working on an Ed. S. in Education Technology with a focus on Distance Education Program Management and an emphasis on ADA compliance in technology-enhanced instructional design.
I would like nothing more than to use my insights as the mother of a special needs child and a young teenager, my skills and knowledge as a teacher and as an Instructional Designer and Instructional Technologist, and my energy and dedication to make our Warrensburg schools even better than they already are.
I have come to realize that if I am not actively doing something to move a situation forward in a positive way, then I am at best ineffective, and at worst, destructive. In the current atmosphere of budget crunches, security issues, and a growing awareness of our children’s changing educational needs in this “Brave New World,” I want to be neither. School Board is an opportunity for me to be a real part of our children’s education. Tell me your concerns, so I can tell you how I would address them if I am allowed to be a part of the system in which we live!
