Hi, I am Constance and I am available for remote work!
 

I am currently seeking remote employment opportunities in instructional design and eLearning development. I am an instructional designer and educator. I have extensive technology experience, including performing technical support services and managing educational software projects in a partnership between Dell and Google. I create learner-centric educational experiences and materials using constructivist learning theories. I have experience working with all ages in education and training. I am passionate about online learning, educational software & media, universal design & accessibility, User Experience and User Interface design (UX/UI), technology, STEM/STEAM education, and computer art & design. I provide support to learners in Asia and Central America who speak English as a foreign/second language. I also lived in Costa Rica for several years to learn Spanish through immersion to improve my ability to support Spanish speaking ESL students.
