Philosophy of teaching:
"Changing the world, one person at a time" served Apple Computer, Inc. as a marketing phase and it serves as a reminder to me for keeping students at the center of the learning experience. I want to be a "co-learner" with individuals who will provide insightful leadership within the instructional technology field.

Research Interests;
Currently, my research efforts are supported by three grants: a two-year grant from the state of Texas is supporting research in the area of videoconferencing as a means of professional development for mathematics educators; a second Texas grant initated an investigation of various mobile computing configurations, including personal digital assistants (PDAs) or pocket PCs. We are also collaborating on a federal grant with eight of the Big XII conference schools to study the technology integration practices of classroom teachers. Locally, we are researching support issues related to a new requirement for teacher candidates to produce web-based portfolios documenting their mastery of the teacher-preparation program benchmarks.
