Teacher, Instructional Technology Specialist, Trainer, k-5. My area of focus for the last 27 years has been in Instructional Technology. I have recently retired so I am now sharing all of my lessons in the area of technology and the Inquiry Process. So many teachers do not use technology in the classroom because of time restraints and limited resources. I've provided lessons that are time-saving, easy to use and can be adapted for your curriculum needs. Visit my store weekly and follow me as I upload units and lessons which are aligned with essential 21st Century Skills. I would love to have feedback on my products, too.
As an instructional technology specialist, I encourage the integration of technology in teaching at any level. I believe in "anywhere, anytime learning". I also encourage cooperative learning. This gives students an opportunity to be creative and collaborate with others.
Texas Computer Education Conference Computer Teacher of the Year; Technology and Learning Magazine's National Teacher of the Year; other awards for technology projects; presenter at ISTE and TCEA conferences
I have my masters in elementary education but have had extensive training in instructional technology.
I love retirement but I continue to improve my skills and stay updated on the latest and best ways to implement technology into the curriculum.
