Happy to see you here!

Welcome to my world of curiosity, learning, and instructional design. I came to be an instructional designer through an intentional career path. I taught K-12 for a number of years, which led to my working for 5 college and universities. A passion for keeping current with emerging technology while maintaining best practices for pedagogy made instructional design a perfect fit for me. To see more, visit my Friday Facts website.
