Education is Bonnie's passion. Her favorite quote, “If you think education is expensive, just try ignorance.”

Being retired from the classroom, she is enjoying her continuing work with Connecting Link students and is able to focus on their needs.  The opportunity to learn and grow with students each day is fulfilling. She still enjoys that “light bulb” moment with learners.

Working with Connecting Link for over 20 years as a site-based instructor, an online instructor and a course writer demonstrates a desire to make sure that the excellence of Connecting Link courses shines. As a classroom teacher, educating grades K-5 and a Technology Integration Coordinator for the school district which included educating educators, students (K-12) and parents she has a wide variety of teaching experiences.  In her final years she enjoyed teaching in a self-contained gifted/talented classroom.

In 1978 she received her first degree from Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, AZ and in 1988 she received a Masters of Science in Education in 1988 from Indiana University. A Gifted/Talented Endorsement was earned in 2005.

She enjoys teaching, traveling, sailing, gardening, reading, cooking and spending time with her family.
