Summary

I have seen firsthand how technology can be used effectively to increase student achievement and to inspire, motivate, and educate students from all backgrounds and at every level.During eight years as a classroom teacher, I endeavored to incorporate technology both as an instructional tool and as a vehicle for professional collaboration and reflection.Now, as a technology facilitator, I collaborate daily with teachers, students, instructional staff, and administrators to develop curriculum, teaching materials, and specific lesson plans designed to take advantage of the educational benefits offered by educational technology.From initially licensed teachers to seasoned veterans, I work successfully with educators of all subject areas and abilities to create effective interactive lessons and activities that use the latest in technology while being rooted in sound pedagogy.
