Biography:
Hello from the Sunshine State. I’m proof that education has no geographical boundaries. I'm the
instructor for your course as well as being a colleague and fellow lifelong learner.

I'm excited about working with you and sharing my enthusiasm for Educational Technology. My
personal goal for this course is to help you explore how ed tech tools can be leveraged to increase
student achievement; improve communication with students, colleagues, and parents; and improve
teacher efficiency.

My course philosophy is that we are learners together—and that’s not


just a cliché for me. I expect to learn from you (I’m excited about that)
and expect each of you to learn from each other. I have instructor
responsibilities, but I see my role more as a coach and facilitator. I want
my students to take control of their learning and push boundaries.

Before I moved to Higher Ed, I taught 34 years in public education. In my


“Final Four” public years, I was the HS librarian, the Technology Coach,
and then the Graduation Project Online Instructor, all for Peters Twp SD.
In my career, I have been a HS English and journalism teacher, a
restaurant owner, an office manager, a grant evaluator, a presenter at
educational conferences, a community college reference librarian and an
online professional development instructor. My first job was at
Kennywood.

At Waynesburg, I teach EDU518 (Effective Online Strategies), EDU505


(Intro to Ed Tech) and EDU508 (Contemporary Issues in Technology.
Me (Center!) with my daughter
and husband.
When I'm not working, I like to read and travel. Because of Covid, it’s
now reading and walking. After a lifetime as a Pittsburgher, I moved first to Austin, Texas a few years
ago, and now reside in Florida. I love that technology lets me teach anywhere at any time.

My grandpuppies and grandkitties are a joy to me so I’ve invited Pigeon to be our class mascot. You’ll
see her posted in the class.
Terry
