Coordinator of Instructional Technology
Prince William County Public School
I am the Coordinator of Instructional Technology for Prince William County Public Schools, where I collaborate with instructional technology coaches, teachers, curriculum supervisors, and district leaders to help lead technology integration in our division. I have led projects that have created innovation, engagement, and empowerment for our teachers and students focused on research-based instructional strategies. I have been an Instructional and Special Education Leader, Instructional Technology Coordinator, and Acting Administrator for Arlington County Public Schools. I am the North TIER representative for Prince William County and serve on the VSTE exhibit hall committee.
Vision for VSTE
Over the next three years, I would like to continue the work helping to grow the VSTE brand making VSTE the technology resource for not just instructional coaches but all educators in the state of Virginia. As VSTE is about connection, collaboration, and professional learning for educators, it also advocates that students all over the state have equitable access to meaningful learning opportunities. Building the VSTE community where educators can grow and develop new collaborations will strengthen instructional practice and create a thriving future for our students. Finally, I would like to see the VSTE conference continue to be innovative and provide first-class professional learning around educational technology.
I have worked in education for over 25 years, as a Special Education Teacher, Instructional Technology Coordinator, Administrator, and Adjunct Professor. I have a B.S in Speech Pathology and Audiology, an M.Ed. in Special Education with a concentration in Assistive Special Education Technology, and an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership. I am a lifelong learner and enjoy the challenge of learning new things. I am currently in the portfolio phase of my ISTE certification, an Apple Learning Coach, Discovery Educator, SMART Exemplary Educator, a BrainPOP Educator, Microsoft Innovative Educator, Google Educator, and a Flipgrid Educator. In my free time, I enjoy attending my son's sports and drama events and going to the beach and Disney World with my family.
