Greetings!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
 
This marks my 25th year as an educator and I am so excited!  I can't believe this milestone arrived so quickly.  I still feel the same thrill with the start of every school year as if it were my first.  
 
About me:  I am a 1989 graduate of Fairfield High School, former Choralier, member of Tri M, and Thespian. I attended Lee University, graduating with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and Secondary Education in 1994. I have taught in Georgia, Minnesota, and now Ohio. I have experience teaching science to all ages from toddlers to adults and have worked in varied settings including public schools, home school co-ops, private tutoring, museums, community centers, and entertainment venues. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Educational Technology through Miami University.
 
My current position as Instructional Specialist allows me the honor of assisting teachers in doing what they do best - instruct and assess to meet the needs of all students in their classrooms. I love being able to serve teachers and students in this way.
 
Outside the classroom I am a wife and mother, life-long learner, singer, thespian, nature lover, science fiction/fantasy nerd, and tech geek. I am an avid Whovian, Browncoat, Tolkienophile, Trekkie, Potterhead, and Jedi Wannabe. :)

Welcome Back!

Welcome to another exciting academic year!  As you prepare for the students, don't forget technology preparations!  Click the icon on your desktop or hit the "F1" button to submit any tech request/question/need you have.  On student machines, access the link via the Fairfield Links page and sign in to the system with your domain log in credentials (what you use to sign in to your computer and Office 365).

What Schools Don't Teach

Computer science is about people using the power of computers to solve big problems.  It's less about the "coding" and more about the logic, problem solving, and creativity.

Summer PD opportunities

Summer is a wonderful time to relax and recharge.  It's also a perfect time to reflect on your teaching practice or learn something new.  Whether you are looking for traditional workshops and classes, smaller group/one-on-one training, self-help, materials to reflect on, something fun and inspirational...we are lucky to have a lot of choices close to home!
