About Me

My Journey In Technology: About 9 years ago I decided to return to school so I could fulfill my dream of becoming an Art Teacher. When I started my journey in 2004 I did not know how to open an email let alone know what that the word “login” meant. I was introduced to blackboard and discovered it was not the board I remembered in school that we wrote on with chalk. I took a technology class as a part the teaching requirements. I also took one digital design class in the art education curriculum.  Needless to say, I got through but was,by no means impressed with my work.  Two and a half years ago I had the privilege of meeting Kevin Honeycutt who impressed and challenged me with the possibilities of technology. I have implemented several technology pieces to my teaching practice but last year after looking into several masters programs, I  decided to take the risk and get a technology masters for my continuing educational experience. I have many goals and ideas I would like to implement in my teaching practice and I am confident this program will help me achieve this goals.

My family at my Husband Master’s of Counseling graduation.

My Family: I have been married for 27+ years to John Mitchell Combs. We have three daughters and son-in-law, a dog and a cat. We have lived in the Mason, Michigan the past 7 years. Our family has lived in five different states and all three of my daughters were each born in a different state. My husband is my best friend and he is my greatest support. I would not be the person I am today without his constant support and belief he has in me.

Things I Love: I love spending time with my family and I love doing anything with them.  I love coffee, chocolate , watching movies, eating popcorn and mexican food.  I love to paint and do adventurous things.  My hope for those I come in contact with is that their life is somehow changed because I have had the privilege to be apart of their life story. My life journey, though it is filled with uncertainty, I know One who has a plan for me and my desire is to run after it without hesitation. Some days I am more fearless, other days I am fearful, but everyday I am faithful.

Things I am learning: I I am learning to use my Macbook. Technology is not easy but it gets easier the more I do it. Trying to be patient with myself.  People at least 10 years younger than me are a lot better at computers than I am. Making friends with people a least 10 years younger than me making my learning easier when I have a buddy.

    • Thanks Beth, this is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. I doubt myself daily, but I have to say I have learned more in two weeks than I ever knew possible. Visit my site again. I am putting on a fun P2PU (Peer to Peer University),it is a new learning experience you, Mike and the boys can try out. Tell me how you all do! It would be great for feedback. You will need a few supplies or you can make your own. YMC
