I was a former classroom K12 teacher and quickly learned it wasn't the profession for me.  I got my graduate degree in hopes to move up to the college setting until I found out about Instructional Design. 

I know there are many teachers out there who want a new career but feel that their skills don't translate over.  The role of instructional design has many of the skillsets that teachers have.

My goal is to give teachers the skillsets needed to break into the ID field.
