A Bit About Me

Though I realize now I have been an educator all my life, the event that jumpstarted my educational career was entering and then winning a Student Tutorial Video Competition that Rice University hosted through one of their courses on the Coursera platform. I discovered the course after my son suggested I check out some of their programming courses. He knew I had been teaching myself Python programming and that I was one of those strange people that loved school, so he thought I might appreciate what they had to offer. 

The ripple of that 5-minute conversation about a new educational tool has entirely changed the trajectory of my life, given me a purpose that stirs my very soul, and makes me jump out of bed every morning excited to continue the important work of improving education. Some of the milestones of my career are highlighted below.
