A special education teacher for 11 years, I currently teach students with significant cognitive disabilities in a self-contained classroom in Mt. Prospect, IL. I am a "geek" who loves to share all things technology, and have worked to integrate technology into my classroom to assist with communication, cognition, and socialization. I am a contributor to the Edreach.us Network as a blogger, and a crew member of the EdCeptional Podcasts. I have been presenting my ideas at local schools and non-profit organizations as well at the Assistive Technology Industry Association Conference in Schaumburg and Orlando, and am available to speak at your school or non-profit organization.
