Career Changes

For the last 8 years I worked at a local education organization. My role was an Instructional Technology Specialist, which in theory works with teachers on integrating technology using relevant educational strategies. Over the course of my work in the organization I have grown and seen different ways that technology could benefit learners. However the demands being put on educational organizations in general has also changed. Education in the United States is once again being put under the microscope.

My Les Paul Google Doodle

So awhile back there was a Google Doodle that was for Les Paul's birthday. One of the cool things about this was that you could record your doodle. So I figured I would share my little jingle in honor of Les Paul.

Upgrading to Drupal 7

So I managed to get some time today to upgrade to Drupal 7. Seems like a lot of things went okay, while a few things haven't. I have to work on getting the Image Galleries and images working again.

So here they are:

Since the car was getting up there in years I decided that instead of putting $1000 into repairs it might be wiser to put that towards a down payment. Well this lead to the search for a new car.

Short Summer

Wow is it really August already? I swear this Summer has flown by... I haven't accomplished nearly half of the things that I had hoped.

This Summer has been quite eventful for me. It started out with a trip in June at the end of the school year to my Aunt and Uncle's down in Nashville TN for a little bit of a family reunion. This was a short and enjoyable trip, though next time I probably will try to stay a little longer. From there it was off
