Highlight a memorable event or person from a past NCCE event that reminded you of what NCCE represents.

One memorable event that reminds me of what NCCE represents is the moment when I was presented with the Technology Teacher of the Year Award in 2020. This recognition was a pivotal point in my career, and helps me to remember what NCCE represents – a community of educators dedicated to promoting and celebrating excellence in technology and teaching. It was a humbling experience to be acknowledged by such an amazing group of educators, including Mike, Jason, Shannon, Sally, and Heidi.

The support and inspiration I continue to receive from the NCCE community have helped shape my career and my commitment to advancing education.

Please describe the reason you joined the NCCE board of directors.

I joined the NCCE Board of Directors because of the impact that the organization had on my career as an educator and my personal growth. NCCE has been an invaluable resource, providing me with support and opportunities for professional development.. Through the conferences and the connections I made, I have experienced significant growth in my teaching practices and I owe a lot to NCCE for making me a better teacher. My decision to join the board was driven by my need to give back to NCCE to ensure other teachers have the opportunity to grow and learn as I have.
