Reached my 10,000th tweet on 11/28/15!


twitter            Although I am considered an “animated and dynamic speaker" comfortable in any large group, I also enjoy private consulting for business industry and educators who need specialized training and customized skill development.

            I bring to Expanding Education over 12 years private industry and 30+ years of administrative experience and teaching computer science -- in the classroom as a secondary teacher, adjunct University Professor
and as a Manager at a County Office of Education, and Director at a school district. 

                Looking forward to sharing
skills and best practices,
