I am thrilled to be able to spend time at your school! As an Instructional Technology Specialist, my primary goal is to serve as a resource for teachers who are looking to embed technology into their daily lessons. It is my goal to help you in any possible way. If you would like some specifics of how we can work together, I can:

  • meet with you after school or during planning to work on lesson plans
  • teach a sample lesson to your students using the Nexus Tablets or Chromebooks
  • observe your class and then offer suggestions on how to best embed technology
  • provide hands-on assistance in your classroom

When can we meet?

I will "set up shop" somewhere in the building, so if you would like to plan, please ask your school technology specialist where I will be. I am also available to observe your classroom and offer suggestions as to how you could embed technology into your current lesson.

Please fill out the form below and let me know when you would like to meet.
