My family and I began to call Nevada home in 2014 when I was hired in the role as a technology integrationist for the district. I work with staff and students on promoting technology integration into the curriculum. I focus on creating a student-centered environment where students create, communicate, collaborate, and think critically with the outside world. I also serve on the Iowa Technology Education Connection board which holds a couple of conferences and a series of workshops across the state promoting technology rich learning environments. I enjoy connecting with other educators and students that promote edtech.
Outside of school, my husband, Brian, and I are following our own children, Drew and Jorie, in their many events. We love to stay active and enjoy the outdoors when we can.
