I am a former early childhood teacher and middle school librarian, and am beginning my 12th year as a Digital Learning Specialist. My twin passions in education are digital citizenship and digital literacy. I am proud to have been a panelist at the Digital Citizenship Summit in October 2016 and to be an associate of the Digital Citizenship Institute. Additionally, I will serve as co-chair of ISTE’s Digital Citizenship PLN for 2017-2018 and am one of two authors of ISTE’s new PD Curriculum for the Digital Citizen student standard.
I completed my Master of Education in Digital Learning and Leading, and I have combined my passions and my degree plan to create CLICK, a website of student-created videos and other content that will teach basic digital literacy skills. (Want YOUR students to participate? Find out how at the CLICK for Teachers site!) I am proud to be a Google Certified Educator and was the first person in my department to become a Google Certified Trainer. And I’m most proud of that Google Innovator badge, completing the quadfecta. I have presented on a variety of topics at the Region 10 Tech Conference, ASCD-Texas, Texas Google Summit, TCEA, and ISTE.
