Welcome to my e-Portfolio 

This website highlights my educational development and student career at the University of Maryland University College. I will be a 2017 graduate of the Masters of Distance Education & e-Learning program 
After receiving my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics, a minor in Physics, and a certificate in Secondary Education from University of MD, Baltimore County, I took time off from school to focus on my family and my career in classroom teaching. In 2014-5 I attended McDaniel College in Westminster, MD full-time and earned a Masters of Secondary Education with both on-campus and online courses. It was here that I realized how much technology had influenced some of the field of education while other parts, like the several schools where I had worked, had remained basically untouched by it. The possibility of completing another Masters degree online while continuing to raise my young children brought me to the University of Maryland, University College (UMUC). This time I wanted to become well-versed in the technology of education. 
In my e-Portfolio, you will be able to follow my MDE Journey which includes each class on my journey’s road and representative works of my educational experience. In addition, my Resume provides a look into my professional journey. This e-Portfolio will continue to grow as my journey continues. 
Welcome and enjoy!
