About Me
I have been a Computer Resource Specialist for Virginia Beach City Public Schools for the past 3 years. Before that I taught middle school science and math as well as biology at the local community college. I am NETS-T certified and will also hold a professional certification in Instructional Technology by this August. I am very excited about the potential for education through integrating technology. In particular, I am determined to weave professional instructional design principles and cognitive learning as an integration specialist. These methods have proven success in the private sector and can translate to many opportunities for growth in public education.
I also serve as the Partnership Coordinator for my school and am constantly looking for school to school connections to help foster global learning and understanding.

Hi Lani!

Happy New Year! I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from Virginia!

You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Marco Morales; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham,MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2008, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!

I dabble in so many sites that I am not surprised you are running into me. I am glad that you are exploring some of the social networking sites. You should try the VSTE ning- It isn't always that active but we are trying to work on that. Are you twittering? There are a bunch of VB people on there. I am JaneneG. Follow me and I will hook you up with the rest.
Hope you are enjoying your summer.
