With over 30 years of educational experience, Maria Turner has always worked to bring curriculum to life by challenging her students with real life problem solving opportunities. After earning her Master’s in Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction, she had the opportunity to work with more educators infusing technology into their ongoing units and extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom and school walls through professional learning opportunities, modeling, co-teaching and mentoring teachers, administrators and paraprofessionals. Maria’s enduring passion lies in sharing the possibilities instructional technology can bring to teaching and learning with educators around the globe. This has included the US Virgin Islands, South Africa, Denmark, India, Turkey and Australia.
Most recently she has been able to share this zeal for educational technology with administrators leading discussions on visioning and transformational implementation.
Maria is an ISTE Certified Educator, Microsoft Innovative Educator Master Trainer, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, Microsoft Innovative Educator Surface Expert and Microsoft Certified Educator.
