About Whitney

I am originally from Decatur, Illinois and am in my fifth year at Murray Independent Schools in Murray, KY.  I worked two years as the technology teacher at Murray Middle School then transitioned into the position of district Technology Integration Specialist working half-time with teachers and half-time in the classroom at the high school and middle school level.

I graduated from Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky with a Bachelor of Science in Career & Technical Education: Business and Marketing with a 5-12 certification.  Through Murray State I student taught at Murray High School as well as Corozal Community College in Corozal, Belize.  I also received my Masters in Secondary Education with an endorsement in Instructional Technology from Murray State University.

In my first year of teaching I reached out to my personal learning network and created some connections of my own to learn about the best and most useful tools on the Internet.  Although my years are packed with new experiences and responsibilities, I've tried to create resources of my own and see this blog as my contribution back to what helped me make it through my first year of teaching.
