I began a career in broadcasting working on radio stations in Maryland, Delaware and Iowa. At some point I began reading novels to occupy my down time and before I knew it there was a book in my pocket everywhere I went. I was climbing through the radio ranks when the thought of teaching popped into my head. A fresh degree in English Literature in hand, I began a teaching career. While teaching English I finished my first Masters in Instructional Technology. I moved from the English classroom to Apex Coordinator, an online virtual classroom made available to our county through the America's Alliance Foundation. Now I am working on my second Masters in Instructional Systems Design.
