It has been my pleasure to serve Guilford County Public School System as a Communications & Technology Specialist. I have worked as a Technology Educator within Guilford County School System for over 22 years. I received my Masters of Science in Technology Education and National Board Certification in Technology Education. I've had the pleasure to work with many Public School families such as: James B. Dudley High School, Ragsdale High School, Andrews High School, Jackson Middle School, Guilford Middle School, Southwest Middle School, Montlieu Elementary School, Bluford Elementary School, and Broughton High School in Raleigh, North Carolina with Wake County Public School System. Now here at Northern Guilford Middle School it's been a wonderful journey.
I've been "Teacher of the Year" at NGMS and "Mentor of the Year" for Guilford County Schools. I hope to provide your child with opportunities to explore, create, and design, while they learn to master standard computer skills needed for the 21st Century. These skills will help them in becoming a life long learner and give them more insight in obtaining their personalized career path.
It is my belief that communication technology and engineering concepts is the area where students get to use their reading skills, math skills and all other transferable skills to become innovative in our needs and wants.
The primary content of technology involves design and innovations of communication systems, construction systems, manufacturing systems, energy systems, agriculture systems, medical systems and transportation systems. The majority of their projects will be a personalized end product that they have created. The career piece is learning soft skills and basic interviewing skills. There are very few worksheets.
Learning about various technology makes your child a life long learner and a productive citizen in our society. Let's prepare and expose our youth to as many careers as possible so they can think about the impact technology has on them and become more informed of their options when it's time for them to make decisions about how they can make changes to enhance our tomorrow.
