Biographical Resume

I am currently teaching computer technology (K-5)at The Rice School/La Escuela Rice (TRS/LER) in Houston Independent School District, Houston Texas, and I have been there from 1997 to present date . The Rice School is a K-8 magnet school for Technology and Spanish with a population of about twelve hundred students.

I began my formal career as an educator in 1978 teaching French to middle and high school students in Nigeria. In 1988 my family moved to the United States.  I graduated with M.Ed. (Elementary) in 1991 from Texas A & M, Commerce.

Since moving to Houston in 1992 I have focused on elementary education where I taught in multiage classrooms for over seven years before I started teaching technology in 2000.

I used technology during those years as a classroom teacher, and I was constantly searching for better ways to integrate technology into my curriculum. As the computer technology teacher for K-5 at my school I am responsible for teaching over six hundred children how to effectively maximize their time on the computer.
