I’m the Library/Digital Learning Consultant at Region 10 Education Service Center in Dallas. I am SO excited to be back in the Land of Libraries after a number of years of being only “library adjacent” in my digital learning duties, and I’m looking forward to getting acquainted with and serving the librarians in the northeast Texas area. Before coming to Region 10, I had been a librarian and then a digital learning specialist in Plano ISD.
I’m proud to have collaborated on the team that developed the ISTE Certified Educator program. I also served as co-chair of ISTE’s Digital Citizenship PLN for 2017-2018 and am one of two authors of ISTE-Metiri’s PD Curriculum for the Digital Citizen student standard.
Check out my Digital Citizenship app, a way for teachers to have at their fingertips lots of one-sentence-a-day talking points for #DigCit.
During my pursuit of my second Master’s degree (M.Ed in Digital Learning and Leading), I conceived and launched CLICK, a website of student-created technology tips. I am a Google Certified Educator and a Google Certified Trainer. And I’m most excited about that Google Innovator badge (thanks to my CLICK project), completing the Google quadfecta. There are currently fewer than 2500 Google Innovators worldwide, and I am proud to be among them.
In addition to my daily work as a professional development facilitator, I have designed and delivered presentations on a variety of topics at Region 4, Region 10, ASCD-Texas, Texas Google Summit, TCEA, TLA, and ISTE. View some of the feedback I’ve received here.
