I’m so privileged to have started a new adventure as a Digital Learning Consultant at Region 10 Education Service Center! I have learned so much just since January, and am looking forward to continuing my own learning journey as I encourage others in theirs.
Previously, I was a Digital Learning Specialist in Plano ISD for twelve years, working with educators at 72 campuses to integrate technology into their classrooms in the most effective ways. As an ISTE Standards expert, having served on the team that developed ISTE’s new and exciting ISTE Certified Educator program, I am a Learner, a Leader, a Citizen, and more!
I am passionate about digital citizenship and was privileged to serve as co-chair of ISTE’s Digital Citizenship PLN for 2017-2018. I 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 a one-sentence-a-day talking point 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 proud to be 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.
I have presented on a variety of professional development topics at the Region 10 Tech Conference, ASCD-Texas, Texas Google Summit, TCEA, TLA, and ISTE.
