Michelle returned to the classroom in 2010, after coordinating technology professional/staff development for eight years in a suburban school district. Although she continues to assist teachers in the effective use of technology in the classroom, Michelle is thrilled to be teaching and learning with K-5 vocal music students and teaching studio voice to students of all ages. A parent of young adults and teenagers, she is also well-versed in blogging, podcasting, digital literacy, online profiles, personal learning networks, and learning how much she has yet to learn. You can find her blogging at http://avenue4learning and on Twitter as michellek107.
