Professional Learning Specialist
Over the past eighteen years in education, Sallee has been in classrooms as an educator, librarian, and as a technology coach. Seeing the power of educational technology has inspired her to do everything she can to empower teachers and students with EdTech tools that are effective in meeting their learning outcomes and goals! Throughout her education career Sallee taught pre-K general education and special education, K-12 library curriculum writing and taught in collaboration with educators. In addition, I have been a technology trainer, consultant, and Microsoft trainer. Her areas of expertise include Microsoft Learning Tools for accessibility, Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft Teams, and many edtech applications.
Through this process Sallee earned a Master of Educational Technology and many Texas teaching certifications including EC-4 Generalist, EC-12 Special Education, Librarian, and an ESL certification. In serving as an Instructional Technologist with Jeni Long across the 30 campuses in their district, they realized that many teachers across the campuses had the same questions and needs. So, they began a YouTube show highlighting the questions, needs, and solutions found by teachers across the district. Sallee and Jeni found that this was beneficial not only to their teachers, but to the global teacher community. As “Jenallee”, they now share edtech tips and tricks on YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, their Blog, and conferences around the globe. They are also co-hosts of The Teacher Connection (@TsConnectionEDU) and were Fellows for the Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIEE) program and Showcase School community. Jenallee also specializes in training involving Microsoft Tools along with Blended Learning & Teaching techniques. Sallee and Jeni published their first book with Elevate Books EDU, The Microsoft Teams Playbook, in 2021 and they are collaborating authors on the EduMatch book, Amplify Learning: A Global Collaborative. In addition, Jenallee was recently awarded the Top 30 2022 EdTech Influencer Award by EdTech K-12 Magazine.
