The thoughts expressed here are mine. These views have been incubated through various experiences during my 35 years in education serving in positions which included: K-8 teacher, school library media teacher at Alta Sierra Intermediate, coordinating school libraries, project director for several federal Teaching American History grants , being principal of an online charter school in the Clovis Unified School District, and as Director of Member Services for the International Association of K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL). My doctorate at CSU Fresno and my research regarding online charter schools in California further refined my learning. Currently, I work as adjunct professor in the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership (DPELFS) at Fresno State, as an online and blended learning consultant as President of Online Learning Visions, and as Co-Founder of the Blended Teacher Network.

More than all of the above, my millennial daughter (now age 25) and the various people I have met, read, or heard at conferences – both face to face and online – continue to provide new insights on the type of educational reform needed in America.
