Supervisor of Instructional Technology/ITRT
Clarke County Public Schools
I have been a leader in instructional technology in Virginia for over a decade, having the privileges to work in PWCS and CCPS in addition to presenting at numerous conferences. I've helped led initiatives to transition to Google Workspace, become a Common Sense Certified District, continue to innovate our division's PD conference each year, and more. I've also had the honor of leading our new teacher program and supervising instructional technology tools & staff. Above all, I help lead the integration of technology over just the sporadic use within classrooms to provide never before possible options and possibilities to our students.
Vision for VSTE
As a board member and treasurer for VSTE over the last few year, I've seen the organization grow and expand it's support of educators in VA to implement meaningful technology integration (webinars, conferences, blogs, & more). I would look to see these efforts continue to expand and reach even more educators throughout VA and beyond. Outreach, support, and multiple avenues to each should be priorities for VSTE over the next three years alongside efforts to be a model of inclusivity and appreciation of all educators and their experiences.
