Why A Teacher in Cyberspace?

The education system is moving rapidly forward in the 21st Century, and if you’re a parent, you want your children to have an advantage. If you’re a teacher, you want yourself to have an advantage. If you’re a school administrator, you want cutting edge, professional development for your staff. I can provide all these things, right online, at any time, to anyone in the world.

I am very interested in Instructional Leadership and change within schools. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English Education and a Master's Degree in Instructional Leadership from Saint Leo University. I currently continue my studies at Saint Leo in the Educational Doctorate program in School Leadership. Whatever innovations I can share with teachers around the globe via cyberspace, I find ways to accomplish that.
