“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between her work and her play, her labor and her leisure, her mind and her body, her information and her recreation, her love and her religion. She hardly knows which is which. She simply pursues her vision of excellence at whatever she does, leaving others to decide whether she is working or playing. To her she’s always doing both.”
-Adapted from James A. Michener
I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico, the “Land of Enchantment” where the view includes the Organ Mountains and the most breathtaking sunsets. I was fortunate and grateful to take part in a transformative experience at Pepperdine University working where I completed my Ed.D in Educational Technology. I spend my days working at New Mexico State University (NMSU) where I have served as a project coordinator and online instructor (2001-2010) and now as assistant professor (2010-present). I also taught middle-school for four years (1996-2000). My expertise lies in learning design & technology, online/blended/hyflex teaching & learning, K12 professional development, higher education faculty development, and emergent technologies. I co-designed, serve as advisor and teach for NMSU’s Online Teaching and Learning Graduate Certificate and am currently the Coordinator for the College of Education’s Learning Design & Technology programs.
I work for and serve the profession of education with the hope of an excellent education for all students and an exciting profession for teachers. At this time, teachers need support more than ever. I work to serve and deliver to teachers the resources, technology support, and community that they need and deserve.
I envision a revitalized and exciting age for the profession of education…
