“Zealous” describes my attitude toward life and learning. I have worked as an aide, substitute, and a high school technology teacher before becoming a Technology Director. Currently, I am the Chief Technology Officer for Middleborough Public Schools. I first discovered MassCUE as an elementary computer teacher and joined a SIG in 1994. I have witnessed and worked for the dramatic growth in MassCUE. Receiving the 2008 MassCUE Pathfinder Award was a lifetime achievement. In 2015, ISTE recognized my work in Advocacy at their annual conference in Pennsylvania.
I have had the pleasure to serve as the secretary to the MassCUE Board for ten years. I have served on the conference committee, Influence and Advocacy Committee and the founding Board of METAA. In 2008, I was appointed by the state Commissioner of Education to the Educational Technology Advisory Council for two terms.
