Welcome to Manistique Area Schools.  I joined Manistique Area Schools and the Manistique School & Public Library in July of 1998 at a time when having a Technology Director in a school system was new to schools.  It was a time when technology was starting to influence nearly every aspect of education from record keeping to instruction.  

I started my education right here in Manistique.  I am a 1981 graduate of Manistique High School.  I went to Lake Superior State College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science in May of 1985.  I worked in a small computer training institute for three years prior to starting at the University of Michigan-Flint as a Staff Development Specialist and a Computer Systems Specialist.  I move to Merit Network in 1996 where I was a Computer Systems Consultant.

After returning to Manistique in 1998 I decided to work on my Masters in Education and Community Leadership.  I received that degree in 2001. 

I find great reward in assisting students, staff and patrons with technology use as I feel that I have been blessed with the skills that I have acquired over the years.  I look forward to every year bringing new challenges in education and doing my best to make the transitions to new and exciting technology easy and pain free.
