Transcript of Darth Vader

To facilitate the process of me completing the proficiencies I am providing my training, and instructional experience to count as a way to test out.
Frisco ISD provided access to even more instructional technology devices and tools for the 4 years I worked at the district. iTouch Labs, iPad Labs, PC Labs, Mac Labs, and Mobile Carts. I have also been shocked at the number of students that have never used so many instructional technology tools that I have used for years. Students that have never made a website, used numerous web-based tools, flash drives, Google Drive, devices for recording and editing audio and video, etc.

As a Technology Instruction Coordinator for Frisco ISD
I supervised the technology integration, instructional, and professional development for two campuses. All of the Technology Instruction Coordinators would meet once a month and share new technology and ideas for integration. I provided professional development for the district. Managed Google logins and passwords, Eduphoria training, logins, and passwords, Forethought, Formspace, Inventory, Facilities & Events, Professional Development, EOC Testing, you know all that is included in Eduphoria etc. Created, managed, and maintained distribution lists. Network printers, network computer labs. Moodle management and training. Mail merging. Teacher Websites. I set up numerous teachers with student response clickers, or CPS systems.

I lead many advanced projects including one working with special needs students to utilize new software and technology to communicate, complete quizzes, and tests even when unable to speak. I facilitated teachers and students three years ago, even at the junior high level to complete entire projects with devices only to get the project instructions, research, create, publish, turn in, and present without computers or paper. I have taught at the junior high and high school level to students, teachers, and staff.
I take great pride and work tenaciously to be
well ahead of the curve with new technology
integration to enhance the learning process. My time will be much better severed researching, studying, the technology our students need now as an instructor teaching four new courses. Frisco ISD hired me after my 4th year in the classroom as a Technology Instruction Coordinator because I was the best with instructional technology integration. In a district of almost 50,000 students my new technology instructional strategies were shared at TCEA as one of the Top 5 technology projects in the district, and my classroom was one of two chosen from the entire district to be observed by Wichita Falls ISD administrators and staff.

I am not sharing this for any reason but to be better able
to do what is best for my students and use my time more effectively to learn new technology and skills essential to our students right now. Actually, I have been asked many times to help multiple new teachers to complete their own proficiency check lists.

Thank you for everything that you do to provide
new technology to our students!
