AGL Initiatives started in 2009 when I created an astronomy project for my students. The folks at USA TODAY Education saw it, liked it, and hired me to develop a more robust version of the project for NASA. Thus my freelance career was born!

I eventually left the classroom and began working full-time as an independent contractor, working largely with Michigan Virtual University on a variety of projects related to online learning. In 2010, I was selected as Michigan Online Teacher of the Year and as a finalists for the National Online Teacher of the Year.

Every day I am grateful for the awesome people that I get to work with, the exciting projects that I get to explore, and the opportunities that I have to teach, create, and continue to learn.
