If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you will see that I often post things related to technology. I really became interested in social media, specifically internet marketing in 2009. I was running an online business and I was completely amazed at the power of the internet.
Once my kids started getting older, my responsibilities as a homeschool educator increased and I found it increasingly difficult to maintain my business life while continuing home management and education. As a result, I took a step back from the industry.
However, I have had a rebirth of interest in this field as my eldest daughter expressed interest in building a video game when she was 10 years old. As the curriculum director of our homeschool I had no clue on what to do. Sooo I started researching gaming software and technology.
Like Alice in Wonderland, I totally fell into the world of technology.
And what an exciting world it is! Due to the gender and ethnic gaps in hiring, there is a new push for companies to hire women and minorities in technical fields especially with the rapid increase of tech job openings.
After learning about the high need I knew that all of my kids needed to learn computer programming as a required course for our homeschool.
Now I am committed to taking my kids to hackathons, computer clubs, and classes--anything that will help push their interest in this field.
