I am the Technology Instructional Mentor (TIM) for Bluebonnet, Clear Fork, and Navarro Elementary Schools. (Kristi Visage and I both share the BBE campus) I have been in this position since 2000 and am honored and thankful to be here as Lockhart is my hometown--I bleed maroon and white--go Lions! Prior to that I was a Business Education Educator at Bastrop ISD where I served as department chair for several years and received both Teacher of the Year and Bastrop ISD Hero awards. Currently I am in my 28th year in this profession that I truly enjoy. I have written curriculum for the high school courses and helped facilitate the curriculum for the dual credit pathway from high school to Austin Community College while teaching at BHS.
My joy and my passion is to help others, I find great satisfaction in seeing a smile come on faces and the light of understanding shine in eyes of the Lockhart faculty and students. In the position of TIM I am so fortunate to be able to work towards making this happen with both students and teachers. My main role is to show teachers and student tech squads (then the tech squads show their fellow students) how to integrate technology in the core subjects. I strive to help our digital natives become engaged in their learning by producing a product to "show what they know".
