I taught for six years with the Arkansas Department of Education Distance Learning Center, and now teach for Virtual Arkansas. I am a big believer in self-paced learning, and have enjoyed creating materials not only for my own students, but for people around the world. I take great satisfaction in hearing from people who have benefited from my courses and other materials. I believe not only that learning should be self-paced, but also that it can (and often should) be fun. Therefore, in addition to teaching and creating iTunes materials, I also enjoy creating video games to help people learn Spanish. I believe that self-paced, independent curricula and educational gaming are both trends of the future of education, and I am excited to play a small part in both of those areas.
