About Me
I am a 6th grade teacher that also teaches a number of online courses for Fresno Pacific University. I created the Global Learning Exchange. This enables me to interact with students and teachers around the world. I have collaborated with colleagues/students in Iceland, Singapore, Norway, The Netherlands, and the East Coast of the United States. I enjoy using ePals to reach out to the world and Skype to connect my classrooms to other students and professionals worldwide.
