If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
Learning Coach - supporting teachers in their own journeys to find purposeful ways to integrate technology and improve literacy instruction.
supporting in all grades: K to 12
How many years have you been teaching?:
4 years teaching, in 2nd year of coaching
Prior to becoming a coach I taught in a multi-grade, one room school on a Hutterite colony. Being the only teacher for all students aged 6 to 15 forced me to learn a lot about differentiation as well as low-tech innovation. I was not able to use technology with my students so when I moved into the coaching position my learning curve was huge. In the last year I became a Level 1 Google Certified Educator, an Hapara Certified Educator and a Freshgrade Champion.
Outside of school my husband and I are kept very busy by our three children and the activities they've chosen to take part in.
