As of June 2017 I'll have finished 16 years of teaching computers and being the Tech SPOC at P.S. 11 (02M011) in New York City. I am a strong believer in using technology to augment the curriculum work throughout the school. I teach out of a 34 iMac station computer lab and support the Pre-k thru 5th grade classrooms throughout the school. Before PS11 I taught 2 years as the technology coordinator in a private school in California and spent 10 year as a retail store manager in various Tower Record Stores across the country. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in History / Education from Beloit College. I moved to Manhattan in 1992 where I earned my MSEd in Elementary Education from Bank Street College and then an MS in Instructional Technology from Touro College.
