Educational Technology

Learning Technology Sparks

This page is dedicated to our students, staff and community members. I am excited to be part of your education journey as we partner to provide high quality learning opportunties for students. My role is twofold: help educators find and embrace moments of joy and remember the "why" for doing this craxy job in the first place. You will find me leading, listening, collaborating, coaching and demonstrating technology tools.
