I am a retired elementary school teacher from South Kingstown. I was at the forefront of technology when it came into the schools and so I was able to learn about how to use it effectively in the classroom. I was a part of the RITTI Program (Rhode Island Teachers and Technology) which gave me the skills to then train teachers how best to use technology with their students. I taught for 25 years before retiring in 2011. I then joined John Bilotta as his assistant at RISTE.
