Fun Facts About Me
I’ve lived in Lynnfield for 29 years

I have an identical twin
I love animals and have rescued four cats and four dogs (not all at the same time)
I have been married for over 20 years
One of the projects that I am working on for my course work is integrating aspects of reality television into a high school-level course
Most importantly, to maintain focus on
student achievement
as the end result, with technology as a vehicle to get there
To work as an Instructional Technology Specialist for a school district committed to implementing technology.
To help teachers with integration of hardware and software technologies into practical lesson plans
To identify trends in software, curriculum, teaching strategies and other educational areas
I will be a GREAT Instructional Technology Specialist!
Technology has changed education and changed how educators can leverage new educational tools to personalize learning, encourage collaboration, and prepare students for the future.

Technology integration is an important strategy for 21st century classrooms.

Through the intelligent use of technology, combined with new approaches to education, a more personalized style of learning can be realized.

Key elements of successful technology integration include: learning outcomes, recommendations on practices and programs by academic subject, tools, and tips for avoiding pitfalls when adopting new technologies.

One Technology Integration Specialist for an entire school district isn't enough! Most districts need more than one, as well as a team of Instructional Technology Specialists.

Having worked in the special education department at Lynnfield High School for the past four years has given me the chance to work with many classroom teachers in almost every department. I have worked with students with a wide variety of needs, both special ed and regular ed in many different ways and strive to always be a supportive, positive educator and facilitator of learning.
