Welcome to my portfolio ...
I am Assistant Head of School at Conserve School, a conservation-based semester school for high school juniors, where I oversee the academic program.
I am also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where I teach curriculum development in the Graduate Program in Residential Environmental Education.
The image you see above shows a student's gloved hands holding a monarch she has just tagged. I've been collecting and tagging monarchs with students as part of a citizen science project for the past four years.
In 2008, about the same time that I started the butterfly project, I was looking for a new academic challenge. The fast-growing and ever-changing field of educational technology seemed an obvious choice. As a result, I began the MSU MAET online program.
This portfolio highlights how I've grown professionally through my experiences in the Michigan State University Master of Arts in Educational Technology program.
