Role in Museum: 

I work with others in the museum to develop educational materials that get distributed on the Web.

Projects: 

I contribute to the Smithsonian's History Explorer project. The project’s goal is to develop and offer innovative online resources for teaching and learning American History based on the Museum's collections. The tools, activities, and lessons we produce are available from both the americanhistory.si.edu and thinkfinity.org Web sites. I am currently focusing on the online OurStory program, which encourages young children and the adults in their lives to connect with American history.
