    I graduated from Washington University with a master degree in Information Management. In 2001 I was employed by Saint Louis Public Schools as a computer teacher and later as an instructional coach. Currently I am pursuing a PhD in Education Technology, focusing on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning and also doing research assistantship related to the TLC lab at UMSL. I was the 2006 Saint Louis Public School "Teacher of the Year" and Emerson Electric "Teaching for Excellence" recipient. The "Global Classroom Initiative" and "Virtual Professional Learning Community," are two research studies that I recently designed and implemented and which I am sharing and presenting at various educational conferences. Additionally, I am also a FIRST Lego League State Championship Judge, a calling that makes me admire students' creativity, innovativeness and passion for scientific inquiry. Besides academics, my great passion consists in traveling, art and cultural explorations.
