The mission of Virtual Realia is to develop a stronger awareness of how to effectively integrate and assess educational technology in the grade K-12 classroom.
Through the use of effective technology integration, the vision of Virtual Realia is to be an educational leader by creating Global (Ed)Ventures, that bridge the real world to a virtual community of learners and that take place far beyond the four walls of a brick and mortar classroom.
I am a Technology Integration Coordinator for the Los Fresnos Consolidated Independent School District, Texas, USA. I'm a published Author, Poet, and avid Photographer. My Doctoral studies have taken me backpacking in the lush jungles of Honduras, trekking across through a chandeliered Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, walking among deer in the island of Itsukushima, more known as Miyajima (Shrine Island).
To pay for graduate school, I worked part-time as a production runner and stand-in for ABC Family. TV Productions I got work on were The Deep End with Clancy Brown, Billy Zane, and Tina Majorino. I also did stand-up at various coffeeshops- my biggest event was in Miami, Florida. Though, my fascination with production and making people feel good was at the core my love, my passion was always to be the teacher students needed. To be the teacher I certainly didn't have, but wished I did.
I live on South Padre Island, off the Southern Gulf Coast of Texas. The importance of travel and education is truly a gift that I would love to share with you. I will always be an English 4 AP/Dual, Technology Applications, and IB Film teacher.
