Hi, and welcome! I'm Dr. Ellie.
I have a doctorate in educational psychology. For over 13 years, I taught middle school level special education, reading, and social studies. My special education specialties include learning, behavioral, and emotional challenges.
For 12 years, I taught at the post-secondary level, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. My main area of university teaching is research and educational psychology, and I consult on dissertation methods and analysis. Most recently, I was a mentor of doctoral learners at the University of Phoenix. Currently, I am residing in the country of St. Maarten in the Dutch Caribbean, where I have become involved in special education consulting.
Hobbies include reading (especially reading and critiquing young adult fiction), quilting, and crochet. I also enjoy walking, art museums, great music (from classical to contemporary), and exploring new local places. I love photography, and am trying my hardest to become a passable picture snapper.
Here is a well-thought-out article for the use of digital and online education for cash-strapped school districts. Assuming that the curriculum is well developed and just as well implemented, online education may be a great way to ensure teacher training in technology and teaching with digital “gadgets.” Can full online education for students be far behind?
