As a teacher of 13 years, I have grown to see the value of technology in the classroom. I obtained a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Central Michigan University to give me the tools that I need to help the students in my classroom. I became an expert in the field of educational technology and am now hoping to play a wider role in helping more than just the students in my classroom. By moving to an administrative role, I will be able to build a framework that will assist all students and staff to effectively integrate technology into their lives, making them 21st Century learners and leaders. In 2013, MACUL and ISTE both recognized me as their Teacher of Year.
