Instructional Technology Consultant
I have been in education for 28 years serving in 7 Iowa districts as a secondary English teacher, a K-6 Technology Integrationist, and a 7-12 Instructional Coach. I am now an in my third year as an Instructional Technology Consultant for Heartland AEA where I assist school districts in using technology purposefully and effectively. I have a passion for empowering students with technology as they tackle various learning challenges. Additionally, I work much in the field of digital citizenship and assist districts as they work to design lessons and curricula guiding students in maneuvering safely and effectively in their digital worlds. I am a Google Certified Educator Level 1 and 2, a Google Certified Trainer and teach the "How to Become a Google Certified Educator" course through Heartland. I look forward to networking with and learning from the many people here involved in education.
