Elementary Technology Lab teacher
East North Street Academy
It is my privilege to currently serve 40+ teachers and over 700 students at East North Street Academy. To say that I love my job is an understatement! On any given day, one can find me among kindergartners helping them to research, with fifth graders, conducting iMovie projects, with second graders snapping photos of plants outside, or even with my co-workers, leading a professional development course via Google Classroom. This kind of variety is what I thrive on! I thoroughly enjoy technology and the challenge it brings to help others learn it too.

Though I have an official job description, my personal mission combines all of my responsibilities into one mantra: Be a leader-of-teachers who infuses in other professionals a passion for integrating technology into their curriculum so that they, the teacher-of-students, then can pass on that same knowledge and interest to the next generation.
