Welcome

quote-on-chalkboardHello! I am McKenzie Self and I am currently majoring in Middle Childhood Education and minoring in Information Technology.

Displayed on this website is all of my work from UA Little Rock’s Information Technology (IT) program. This program covers a variety of topics from website development and design to data management to professional skills in the workplace.

Our world is continuously evolving to adapt to the new technology that is being created to make our everyday lives easier. Education is no different, and that is why I felt that this minor would help me when I get out into the field. From classroom websites to integrating a 1-1 classroom in schools across the nation, technology is changing, and improving, the way that our youth is learning. This minor has helped me become aware of those changes, and has provided me the necessary skills so that I will be prepared when I enter the classroom to teach our students.

I have always considered myself “tech-savvy” and a problem solver, so the IT program appealed to me right away. I have thoroughly enjoyed my three semesters in the program learning different skills, both technical and professional. I know that I am equipped to teach the upcoming generations and would be able to pass on my knowledge of web development, data management, and professional skills to my students and even to my colleagues.

As you explore my portfolio you will find plenty of examples of my work from the program. The portfolio itself is also an example of my work, as I developed my own custom WordPress theme. Each assignment is listed with a description of the assignment, as well as any skills that I either developed or enhanced while working on it.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my portfolio and my work. I have loved the journey I have taken within the IT minor program. It has made my motto, “I aspire to inspire”, even more true.
