As a certified humanities teacher with 7 years' experience in both middle and high-school classrooms, I have seen directly the impact digital tools can have on instruction and student learning. 

Technology can be transformative to a teacher's practice. But it can be daunting and frustrating too, if supports are not in place.

I believe I'm at an ideal median: able to bridge a teacher's perspective and concerns--especially the pressures of fulfilling curriculum  requirements--with  the support and expertise of a tech coach. 

I received my Masters in Instructional Technology from Kennesaw State University and am now working in my dream job, directly with and for teachers, to ensure that technology's impact is felt in other classrooms and both students and teachers feel empowered by and supported in its incorporation.
