This post is long overdue.
We announced K12 Online on September 1, 2006. It was either the same day or the next day that Lani Ritter-Hall contacted me to offer to help in any way that she could. Over the following weeks we decided that we should have a single person responsible for posting all the presentations to the blog during the conference in order to ensure continuity. We’re doing everything we can to make this job easy but, the fact of the matter is, reviewing and posting at least 4 blog posts every day for too weeks is a big job. When I asked Lani if she’d be willing to take it on she replied, without hesitation, “sure.”
Lani is a National Board Certified teacher from Ohio in the US. She spent many years as a classroom teacher; she is currently an instructional designer for online professional development courses for eTech Ohio.
Lani also submitted a proposal for the the conference (which was part of the reason we delayed this announcement). The blind peer review committee selected hers as one of the presentations to be published for the conference … so, her plate is full … yet we couldn’t be happier to have her as a member of our team. Her poise and charm will resonate in through every post over the two weeks of the conference.
Welcome aboard Lani!
