comes to Cherokee Trail after living and laboring in several different
states. These adventures equipped her with valuable skills necessary
for work with computers, teachers, staff and students in a high school
setting. It all began with her college degree in Mathematics which
perfected her aptitude for counting computers in labs. She spent almost a
decade in Missouri plugging away as a computer analyst, learning to
program computers in languages no one uses anymore and priming her for
feeling totally inadequate in the face of what kids know about
technology today. Then she moved to Minnesota where she shopped at The
Mall of America, becoming versed in how to dress cool. After a short
return to Missouri, it was on to Kansas where she punched the clock at
an insurance company, mastering office programs and training herself not
to panic when the computer crashes causing the loss of the day’s work.
When her husband was promoted she took a long jump from Kansas to Utah,
where she earned her living teaching technology in an elementary school.
The students there very patiently taught her how to play computer games
and improve her mind at the same time. Finally, she came to Colorado,
quickly picking up on how to breathe at a higher altitude. Through all
this she raised two daughters, becoming highly proficient at being wrong
all the time. Now she feels like she fits right in to the high school
tech support scene.
