I have been teaching fourteen years and over the years I have learned so much about education and technology. I have developed skills in both that is overwhelming, but I always want to learn more.
My professional goal is to pursue a higher education and an expert level in the field of Career and Workforce Education with a specialty in Instructional Technology. As I look back over the years I have developed a progression of knowledge and skills that have benefited me, as well as fit together as building blocks for me to pursue my Ph. D. in career and workforce education and instructional technology at USF. My past and present life work experiences give me the knowledge and a personal connection to all fields related to technology and education. Through this I can incorporate my desire to create realistic goals toward the future of our educational system through instructional technology.
My professional and personal goals continue to work well together, as well as my strong desire to pursue my doctorate in Career and Workforce Education. Both lives are very rewarding goals in efforts to change my life, my family life, and the life of others.
