Transcript of Discovery Kate
what was so great about the PD?
I love using a MAC but I'm pretty comfortable with the PC, too, which helps in a two-platform district.
I attended an all-girls high school in Palos Verdes,
then USC, graduating with a Bachelor of Music (Voice).
I received my credential and masters at Pacific Oaks College.
My thesis, "
Easing the Computer into the Primary Classroom"
While my adventures in technology began on a MAC,
as a LITE (Leader Integrating Technology in Education) and a teacher for Arcadia USD, I discovered the subtleties of the PC as well.
I attribute my background knowledge of PC platforms to my colleagues in AUSD and often joke,
Presently serving as Project Coordinator of the Round 3 and Round 4 EETT Competitive grants for Glendale USD and Duarte USD, my knowledge of the ever-changing world of technology and its application to curriculum continues to expand.
I am presently a Teacher Specialist in Technology for Glendale Unified School District (since 2001) and I have the pleasure of teaching computer and technology skills to students, teachers, administrators, and staff.
[ and now I am a ]
I was born and raised in Southern California and am the eldest of a blended family of 8 children.
My background is in primary education teaching K-1, 1st and 2nd grades.
Not a moment's hesitation on this one!
The ultimate, most fabulous, most informative,
most creative PD was ...
Discovery Education's First Western Regional Conference at Sea World!
I loved the experience so much I wanted more!
I became a member
Discovery Educator Network
brought to us by ...
sang with the William Hall Chorale and the LA Master Singers,
birthed two incredible children,
and loved being a stay-at-home mom.
UPDATE - Four beautiful grandchildren!

I use a SMARTBoard for trainings in the district lab
I am participating in the
"SMARTBoard Content Creation academy"

I LOVE using Web2.0 tools ...
( Why buy expensive software? )
I am "well-versed" in multiple software applications ~
Inspiration, Kidspiration, HyperStudio,
(PowerPoint, Excel and Word),
Photo Story 3, iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, Garageband
Hooray for Podcasting!
... and getting better at Keynote and Pages
I am a confident teacher who exhibits incredible patience working with students of any age.
My fault is that I tend to go too far, always wanting to teach that one, next step ... oh, well
well, that's about it ... for Katie and

provided wonderful classroom experiences
I began substitute teaching in 1989 while studying at Pacific Oaks College
