I received my doctorate in 1992 from the University of North Texas with a dissertation on professional development for technology and continued my teaching activities. I became the Director of Instructional Technology in Dallas ISD in 1995, served for 11 years, and then retired in 2006. I presented in a national (National Education Computer Consortium) and many state conferences in Nevada and Texas on technology in the classroom. I was president of TCEA in 1999-2000. I have written articles in the Texas Computer Educators Association magazine Tech Edge, and authored a guide for PD based on the Multiple Intelligences Theory and a children's software guide. I have written curriculum for the University of Texas at Commerce and the University of Phoenix. I was the 2003 winner of TCEA's State Technology Director of the Year, 2001 Fulbright Memorial Fund winner to visit Japan and visit schools, national winner of "Making it Happen in Educational Technology" in 2001, and scholarship winner in 1990 and 1989 in state associations. I have taught at several universities including the University of North Texas, Southern Methodist University, the University of Texas in Commerce and Collin College Community College in McKinney, TX.
