Educational Technology Trainer
I have been working in Mesa Public Schools since 2005. I taught English at Riverview High School for six years before joining the Educational Technology team as a trainer. Prior to teaching in Mesa, I taught 7th-grade language arts for three years in Litchfield Park and 7th and 8th-grade language arts for two years in Coolidge.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education with an endorsement in language arts from Western New Mexico University in May 2000.
I am continually working to expand my knowledge of educational technology, especially related to G Suite. In 2014, I earned my Google Educator status then applied for and was accepted as a Google for Education Certified Trainer.
As part of the EdTech team, I am primarily responsible for the following initiatives: EdTech Live!, G Suite, Google+ and Hangouts, Hangouts On Air/YouTube Live stream, Classroom Performance System (clickers), and the MPS Teacher Observation Tool (TOT). Links to each of these pages can be found below my profile picture.
