    About me:
    It has been my pleasure and honor to be working and learning with the students of the Central Dauphin School District since 1989. Growing up just an hour south near Wrightsville, PA and attending Millersville University for Industral Arts/Technology Education has kept me close to home. In 2009, I also became National Board Certified in Career and Technical Education. I am a resident and parent in the district with my own children passing through the C.D. school system.
     
    Keeping up-to-date with emerging technologies and updating our curriculum to remain as cutting edge as possible has been my life's work. I often have opportunities to work with local industries. I have developed curriculum for the K'NEX corporation and just this past summer, had the opportunity to work with a small team of individuals at Phoenix Contact in Middletown teaching 3D modeling and animation. Relevant design and engineering applications, computer animation, 3D printing & prototyping, and computer game development continue to help our students stand out in their post secondary educational experiences. We even piloted a new course in 2018-19: Drones & Flight. This class will focus on the growing professional fields of using drones, safety, and preparation for commercial certification. I am glad to be a part of our students' development.
     
    In addition to teaching tech ed to our students, I am also a district technology integrator, helping other district teachers determine ways to integrate more 21st century technology experiences into their own classrooms for more meaningful student experiences.
