Website Administrator

I  have been the calendar editor for an environmental organization for the past year, but my responsibilities have grown! As of July 8, 2018, I am now in charge of making additional modifications as they become necessary. I am not the “owner” of the website, so there are some changes that I cannot make because my administrator credentials do not cover everything, but I have access to most of the pages and content. I am eager to help New York City Friends of Clearwater whenever the board members or officers want my help. I do not develop content, rather I take content that the other members have developed, edit it into a web-friendly format, and post it online to their website. I also edit pages when requested to do so by the officers. This is an exciting new step for me and gives me a chance to learn a different form of web development.I do not have the time to be a fully active volunteer, but I have been told that this small volunteer effort is very helpful to the organization and its members. New York City Friends of Clearwater is a small environmental organization that is affiliated with the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. It is not affiliated or aligned with any political party or group. Although I have been a member, a board member, and held all of the officer positions at various times in the past;  I do not have the time to be a fully active volunteer. I have been told that this small volunteer effort is very helpful to the organization and its members.  I will be putting up more current information and making additional enhancements throughout the next year.

I have also offered to take over my school’s website as part of my technology liaison (technology coordinator) duties, but I have not heard back from the school’s principal.  Our current web developer is extremely capable but very busy so I have offered to help. Quite frankly, I sincerely hope that I am able to take on this task. I have used Microsoft’s now retired FrontPage,  the obsolete Netscape Navigator, an earlier version of Adobe’s Dreamweaver, and what used to be Verizon’s web-building interface. WordPress is my only current web development tool. It is past time that I learn more about additional web design software and online site that are in use in 2018 and beyond. This will add to my abilities to serve my school in my technology liaison position and improve my knowledge for the future.

I am a special education teacher who supervised a technology lab for twenty five years. The lab had specialized software, adapted mice, additional adapted hardware, and picture symbol communication aids for students whose significant disabilities made it difficult for them to use the general computer lab. I taught students who could not climb the stairs to my lab in their classrooms. I also assisted teachers and other personnel in my school with their technology needs as time permitted. Before moving to the technology lab, I was a classroom teacher with a classroom computer that students and staff could use. Now, I am a semi-retired substitute teacher.
