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 , and being principal of an online charter school in the Clovis Unified School District. My doctorate at CSU Fresno and my research regarding online charter schools in California further refined my learning. After working as an online/blended learning consultant as President of Online Learning Visions , I am now working as the Director of Member Services for the International Association of K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL). Our mission is “to ensure all students have access to world-class education and quality online learning opportunities that prepare them for a lifetime of success.”
More than all of the above, my millennial daughter (now age 21) 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.
