Teaching History: 1 year as a 2nd grade classroom teacher, 7 years as a k-5 technology specialist/teacher. 5 years as a technology integration specialist offering mentoring, training, and professional development.
Current Work: I am not in the classroom, you can learn more about that decision here. In the year I was out of the classroom, I offered freelance technology training, social media consulting, professional development, curriculum design, and technology integration consulting, virtual classroom. If you are interested in working with me, you can contact me here.
In 2011 I started my own school, Anastasis Academy. I believe that education needs a reinvention. Anastasis is my dream of what education can and should be.
I wasn’t always the computer geek I am today…I kind of fell into the computer teacher role and found out that I love it and that I have a passion for technology (particularly Apple!!) who knew? My goal is to help teachers fall in love with technology the way that their students have. I believe that technology reaches students in a way that few other mediums can. It ignites a fire, a desire to learn, and gives them the ability to express themselves in meaningful ways. I have never had a student who didn’t love my class…I am a good teacher but I am not THAT good, what they love is using technology to learn. So with that in mind, I set out to give teachers a resource where they could find easy-to-implement ideas for using technology in their own classrooms. I hope that iLearn Technology is a great resource for teachers but also that they would find even one piece of technology that they are passionate about. I have found in my own technology walk, all it took was one really great website (www.starfall.com) and I was hooked. My belief is that technology meets students needs, engages them, and helps them to be the best learner they can be.
