I felt that the blog software provided by Wix.com was a bit constricting and did not provide the customization, traffic, and support that I was looking for. So thus…the new site and look.

…wing and another interview I would like to get setup in the coming month, but I wanted to give you a very short update as to why such a long silence from me. I recently moved and started a new job in the Lake Tahoe area as the high school counselor at a small high school.

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

…view (and the cost factor), I decided to go the CD route for my digital portfolio and ended up buying some labels and disc jackets for one district (with more people).
