What's a Tech Coach?

As your Tech Coach, my job is to help you integrate technology into your classroom. I am available to:

  • co-teach lessons using technology programs (like Excel, Edulastic, etc).
  • co-teach lessons about technology skills (like digital citizenship, cyber-bullying, etc).
  • help your PLC team gather and examine data.
  • help your team find and use tech resources for various standards.
  • show you how to use new programs purchased by the school and/or RCS.
  • present technology resources or tools at parent night events.

While I'm the first line of contact if something isn't working, my primary duty is to be an instructional resource to our faculty, students, and parents.

Tech Coach Schedule

I'm at LLE every M, T, Th, and Fri. I also serve Smyrna West Alternative School and am there on alternating Wednesdays.

My "Stuff" Doesn't Work!

If something is not working, please email the work order database for your school ( or and be sure to include:

  • a description of the issue
  • your room number
  • the RCS tag number for the equipment (all PCs will have one).

Our tech and I use this email address to enter work orders. Please do not email work order requests to us directly as those can get "lost" in our email.

Our fantastic tech (Carol Easterling) is here on Tuesdays and will visit your room and look at your issue.

New Server---New Procedures

We now have a "single sign-on" which makes it vital that you do NOT let students use any computer you are logged in on. You will be automatically logged in to your email when you log in to a PC.

You have full access to MS 365 (be on the look-out for future training!)

Students in grades 3-5 will soon have access to One Drive.

Network Student and Teacher usernames and passwords are all added by CO.
