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, as Co-Founder of ForwarDirections College and Career Coaching. and 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.
