I am eager to round up a local community of educators with a common interest of finding transformational methods of using technologies to enhance teaching and learning. My goal is to create a support system for educators of all technology skill types and one shared passion.

I am looking forward to learning a lot from the GEG global community and excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with the other groups.
