Professional Learning Specialist
My passion is creating learning units that allow for student agency, connecting their learning to real life applications, and using technology in meaningful ways. I have been a teacher for over 16 years, teaching kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade in Texas, Arizona, and Idaho. I have been nominated for Teacher of the Year in my district for 3 years, won IETA Teacher of the Year in 2017, and won Educator of the Month in 2016.
I have my MS in Instructional technology, and I am Google Certified. For the past several years, I have had the opportunity to present at various technology conferences, sharing new and engaging strategies with other educations. These conferences include NCCE, the iPad Academy at Texas Council Education Association (TCEA), IETA in Boise, and several Google Summits.
