I am currently employed with Putnam County Schools as a Technology Systems Specialist at Hurricane Middle School. Previously I held this same position at Buffalo High, George Washington Middle, and George Washington Elementary Schools. Prior to joining for Putnam County Schools I served at Huntington Middle School (HMS) in Huntington, WV as the Title I Technology Integration Specialist (TIS). I previously worked at both Enslow Middle School (2007-2009) and Cabell Midland High School (2009-2013) teaching Social Studies.
I have also served as a consultant and mentor for Common Sense Education as they worked to develop and grow their educational review site Graphite.org.
I am a 2004 graduate of Marshall University with a B.A. in Secondary Education (Social Studies) and History. I also have a M.A. in Teaching and Learning with Technology from Ashford University in 2012. In addition to being certified to teach Social Studies, I hold certification as a Technology Integration Specialist, Technology Systems Specialist, and Library Media Specialist.
