I'm a little late to the table in regards to this whole thing. I was asked to participate shortly before the annual NYSCATE Conference.
Since I'm on the conference committe, and co-chair for the Podcasting Subcomittee, I haven't had a whole lot of time yet to get fully engaged in this as I'm still trying to trouble shoot the NYSCATE podcasting website (see the site for details), and get the recordings posted.

I work at Erie 1 with Mansel, Donna, Dave, Brian, Jean, and Carmelita doing pretty much what they do. Prior to that . . . well . . . I was born in 1974 to loving parents in the . . . just kidding, I won't do that to you. Just know that I have a varied background. I have a BS in Music Education, a MS in Educational Computing; I'm an IC3 Certified Trainer for both the 2003 and 2005 standards (which means I know a lot about antiquated technology); and I was Tfas Certified for the NYS Math A Exam until Texas Instruments changed the rules to state you had to be math or science certified to keep your Tfas certification. In the classroom I have taught middle school music for a semester, K-2 Music (4 years), and Introduction to Computer Programming in VB 6 at Jamestown Community College for 2 semesters.

I had my second interview for this BOCES job, where I had to teach a lesson, on Sept 11, 2001. Needless to say, it was a memorable day.

Since coming to BOCES, I've been involved with staff development for about 6 years (starting the 7th year now), as well as presenting on various topics at NYSCATE and the past two NECC conferences.

By the way, be sure to check out the NYSCATE podcasting website as new content is going to be added regularly. There's a particularly interesting vodcast featuring a debate between Will Richardson and Gary Stager. Oh . . . you may not want to try this via dial-up connection . . . .
