Katherine Bender
Educational Technology Trainer


I was born and raised in Arizona. I received my first Bachelor's Degree, in Japanese, from Arizona State University then moved to Japan to teach English for two years. When I moved back to Arizona I went back to ASU for my second Bachelor's Degree, this time in Secondary Education - History, before joining MPS as a social studies teacher at Kino Junior High School where I spent the last four years. This summer I completed my Master's of Science in Instructional Technology from Grand Canyon University. 

This year I am joining the Educational Technology Department as a trainer. I am really excited to be able to help educators discover new ways to use technology to enhance student learning and engagement in the classroom. I look forward to working with you this year!
