I have been a public school educator for over 30 years. My experiences as a 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classroom teacher as well as an elementary STEM Specialist and Digital Integration Facilitator have been a wonderful adventure.
I hold North Carolina licensure in Regular Ed, Special Ed, Academically and Intellectually Gifted, and have National Board Certification. Midway through my career, through an NC State Kenan Fellowship, I worked with educational researchers to create multi-user immersive science games for elementary students. My passion has always been integrating technology and engineering in relevant ways at the elementary level, and I continually try to find ways to share my love of science with students and colleagues. My life-long dream to become a picture book author has led me to write the Emersyn Blake series, named after our first grandchild. I love spending my spare time reading and enjoying the beach with my husband, our three grown sons and their families.
