Why I need this: A podcasting lab would allow our students to share their knowledge with others within our school and outside of our school. It would challenge our students to create products that solve problems and offer solutions, demonstrating real-word skills. It would offer students another way to learn in a manner that today's technologically-savvy kids would understand and enjoy.

We are a multicultural Title I school in an older building with high maintenance needs and old equipment. New equipment purchased through building funds are not sufficient to replace dying equipment. Our children do not have a lot of technology at home and we try to provide every opportunity for learning experiences involving different types of technology.

I love mysteries, cookbooks, and gardening books. I read a lot of children's books and current favorites are: "Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School", "Skippyjon Jones" books, author Hanoch Piven's books, and "The Word Eater".
Reading! Cooking, gardening, and travel.
I have been with the Virginia Beach City Public School system for 6 years. I went back to college to get my certification as an LMS to work in the schools. Prior to that I had worked in publishing and the medical field as an AA.
Why Do I Teach?:
I love the interaction with the children and the opportunity to make a difference in their school experiences. It is the most demanding job I have ever held, but also the most rewarding. I am continuously having to re-evaluate my learning and grow while I am helping the students grow. I love it!
