Q: What can you tell us about your role in the company? What do you like most about your job?
A: My role in the company is to create fun, educational, standardized lesson activities that teachers can easily find and use in their classroom to make their life easier. I also provide feedback (mainly for NUITEQ Snowflake) and provide feedback to help resolve bugs and issues. At conferences, I demonstrate all of the neat and wonderful features of Snowflake as well as snow.live so teachers can take back what they’ve learned at the conference and use it in their classroom. I conduct webinars to help train teachers on different components of Snowflake to increase classroom usage by students and teachers.
Q: What motivates you to succeed in your role?
A: The motivation for me are the teachers and kids. When I see kids and teachers get excited, get emails from teachers about how much they love the software, and see that teachers want to learn, I want to continue to help inspire them, teach them, and help them integrate the software in their classrooms. I love to model lesson activities for teachers in their classroom and watch how excited their kids get, as well as them when they see how easy, fun, and interactive the lesson activities in Snowflake are.
Q: How do you occupy your free time and what are you passionate about?
A: I like to ride my motorcycle, sew, add to my antique booth, and laser engrave things in my spare time. I also love to create lessons and graphically design things. Sometimes a massage is great as well and helps to naturally relieve tension. Taking care of oneself is important. I also make sure I am thankful each day and pray for the life that I have, and the people and careers that God has put in my life.
Q: Where would you like to travel to in 2020?
A: I would love to travel to the Maldives or a tropical location with a clean beach to just walk along the beach in the morning, and soak up some sun. I would also love to visit Machu Picchu in Peru, the Dominican Republic, or somewhere where I could see the Aurora Borealis at night.
Q: What’s your favorite food?
My favorite food is crab legs dipped in butter, and sweet rolls spread with honey cinnamon butter. I also love Pumpkin Pie with whip cream from a can, or just whip cream from a can (I know, healthy right?).
