I am currently an 8th grade teacher of U.S. History but have had many roles in my district including Technology Education (computer applications) and Technology Integration Teacher which was a role where I was able to step outside of the classroom to work with teachers and their ability to incorporate technology into their classrooms.
My teaching style is definitely more student centered learning than teacher directed. I like to have students learn the foundational material at home prior to class so that we can use some of the great Google ready resources that I have for them in class!
I have spoken at several educational technology conferences and presented at a number of others in order to facilitate the incorporation of technology into the K-12 classroom.
