Guiding Eyes (GEB) is a nonprofit providing superbly bred and trained guide and service dogs that expand horizons for people to achieve life’s goals. All services are offered free of charge to men and women who are blind or visually impaired and to families with children with autism. My family and I have raised six dogs for GEB. Each pup has changed our lives, and the life of another, in ways we could never imagine.

The image above was created for Edtech 506 and shows me surrounded by the dogs I raised. The quote at the bottom is from a t-shirt that a co-worker gave me as a present. She thought I could wear it at work to limit the number of people that approach me each day to fix their home computers. The shirt is great, but I don't mind lending a hand when needed.

About Me

I love my job as the District Technology Integration Specialist for Guilford Public Schools. Everyday, a new challenge awaits me. I work with great people, in a caring environment.

This year my focus was on implementing a Google Apps for Education initiative for all staff, faculty and students. As part of this project we also introduced Chromebooks for grades 2-8, a 1:1 configuration at our HS and iPads for kindergarten and first grade.

My experience at BSU has been awesome. Trying to narrow down my e-portfolio to just two dozen artifacts was a major challenge.

My Hobbies

I am a semi-pro photographer and writer, and avid fisherman. Given a choice, I would be on the water, or in the woods, instead of in front of a computer! (just kidding)
