    I have a strong interest in educational reform at all levels-reading, math and science. 21st century learning technologies and video games intrigue me because of their educational possibilities. I am also interested in brain research and early literacy, impacts on learning. I have a fun daytime job--I get to blow bubbles and tell stories at a busy public library.
