My time at Mount St. Mary's was one of the most valuable professional developments ever. I am not afraid to take risks when it comes to integrating technology into instruction and my students have directly benefitted from the enhanced learning content. I am also consistently using my technology skills to train colleagues and other professionals from around the world.
