I'm a Google Certified Educator.
I'll teach you how to build and manage your new website with Google Sites.
Why should you use Google Sites?
Google Sites is free.
Google Sites' new drag-and-drop interface is easy to use.
Google Sites is responsive. Your site will display well on all devices.
Google Sites is collaborative. You can share your website with other people, who can edit it remotely and in real time.
Your Google Site can be visible to everyone on the web, or you can restrict access to your friends, family, or colleagues.
Google Sites is a Google product so it integrates fully with Google Drive and Workspace and all of the projects you've created with Google Apps like Docs, Calendar, Forms, Slides, Sheets, Earth, and Drawings.
Google Sites is dynamic, adding new features all the time, like image carousel and collapsible text.
Why should you work with me?
I am a retired teacher and a Google Certified Educator. Showing students and teachers how to use software was a big part of my job. In fact, it was my favorite part of my job.
Since I retired in 2014, I've been teaching friends and colleagues how to build their own websites with Google Sites. I've also taught community ed students at Portland Community College.
Tell me about the website you would like to build. I'll tell you if Google Sites is the right platform for you. Be sure to read 28 Examples of Google Sites Websites by Steve Benjamins.
I charge $35/hour. I work with individuals and small groups. I also teach classes online via Zoom at a reduced rate.
I live in Portland, Oregon. But you don't have to. We can work together remotely from anywhere in the world, using Zoom.

Google Sites is Dynamic.
New features are being added all the time. One of the newest features of Google Sites is the image carousel. You can set the carousel to advance manually or start automatically, and you can control the speed.
