Well, I took some time off from classes as I dove into a new job as resident services coordinator at a 325 unit apartment complex in Atlanta Georgia. The whole Georgia Teaching Fellows thing didn't go as planned and I had a choice before me... I made lemon-aid.
I'm excited about creating online learning opportunities as I find myself traveling between Kansas and Chicago on a regular basis. I am desperate to start my teaching career and this is a way a can have everything I want. Teaching is my final career, my legacy, so to speak. I've been a programmer for NASA, a telecommunications engineer, owner of a mobile nail spa (LadyBugg Nails), entrepreneur, consultant, real estate investor. just to name a few things and I want to make sure that I leave the planet better than I found it.
Last month I saw the movie "Chef". The use of social media to build his food truck business (as orchestrated by his 10 year old son), was pure genius. Twitter got him into the mess and twitter ultimately saved him.
I want to learn how to harness the power of the internet and social media to take down walls and connect people. I'm excited to explore these tools with new friends and colleagues.
