Hello! I have been "lurking" on here for quite some time, so I want to introduce myself and become an active participant! My name is Rachel, and I am excited to begin my instructional design journey with Articulate Storyline. A little about me: I was an educator in the public school system for nearly a decade, and while teaching third grade I earned my MA in Instructional Technology. I was unable to fully utilize my skills in that environment, and so I made the jump into the corporate world. Currently I am an analyst for Lowe's corporate. My goal is to build my portfolio, begin freelancing, and move into a position as an instructional designer. Advice for platforms to house portfolios, best practices for getting started, networking, etc. is extremely appreciated! Thanks in advance, and I look forward to learning from seasoned professionals on this forum.
