Welcome to Auntie's Web Page

Aunt Goodiebags is a character that lives in the computers of Dr. Nancy Smith.

The character was created in the early days of computers in the schools

to help teachers better understand technology and how it could be used to enhance their teaching.

Aunt Goodiebags always brought choco-chip cookies to workshops because

we know technology can be a tad confusing and frustrating.

We also know that choco-chip cookies can help!


Please look around at the items on the navigation bar at the top of the page.
