I am the Science Curriculum Specialist and Gifted Education Grant Coordinator for School Improvement Services at the Cooperative Educational Services Agency 5 (CESA 5) in central Wisconsin. We serve 35 rural school districts and I offer professional development training workshops for science educators and gifted education coordinators/teachers. I am a Wildlife Ecologist and have worked as a science educator at the middle school, high school, college and graduate levels. I enjoy connecting students to the beauty and wonder of the natural world. I also enjoy teaching with technology and have been teaching fully online courses and developing fully curriculum since 2004. Currently, I teach fully online high school courses in AP Biology, Biology & Marine Science for Wisconsin Virtual School. I love using Web 2.0 tools, such as the NSTA Learning Center, in both professional development and teaching.
