Former but Forever ELA and Reading Teacher. Instructional Design & Technology MEd. Technology Integration Specialist, Tech Teacher, Pk-6th. Interesting role in this rapidly changing environment, I am definitely a constant learner who is always looking for ways to incorporate tech in meaningful, scalable, and realistic ways that can benefit all learners.
I love, love, love collaborating with teachers to help them find ways to use digital tools to enhance and transform instruction. I also love, love, love working with students and learning about what works for them and what makes them light up. Honestly, I think I learn more from them than they do from me. I am an advocate of digital learning, connecting, and access and just what that means for our students. I am also passionate about how we are challenging ourselves in this field and our students to reach a deeper level of thinking, understanding, and expression.
Techful Tidbits will be about digital tools & integration strategies for education, what I have observed and what is working for my school and students, but also other things that impact this space and my world. Hence the “and more” …Instructional strategies, PD…The good, the bad, and the NO!
A little more personal: I don’t own any pets but I do have a son and an amazing partner who I hope to spend the rest of my life with.
