I have had the great opportunity to assist my school in making the switch from Windows to Mac. The road was filled with hours of research, training, hands on help, patience and tears. The outcome is the pride that I have to watch my teachers who once used their computers for email and Google.. now create their own websites with iweb produce movies and podcasts with iLife and now share the love that I have for my Mac and what it can provide our students and teachers in the classroom and home!
