I graduated from Augustana College in May 2005 with an Elementary Education Major & a Spanish Minor. In August 2005, I landed a job teaching 4th grade at Piper Elementary School in South Berwyn District 100. I taught 4th grade for 7 years and was involved in many district initiatives: PBIS (Universal Coach), Inquiry Based Learning, Summer Curriculum Mapping, Workshop Presenter, Berwyn ARTS Grant, 1:1 Pilot Classroom, 8.12 Professional Development Team, Site Visit Planer, Imaging & Device Roll Out, New teacher Orientation, Back to School Picnic Planner, and the 100% 1:1 Wireless Device Program.
The 2014-2015 school year was busy, preparing for our 1st EdTech Conference. After attending iPadpalooza in Austin, TX June 2014, I was inspired to host our very own one-of-a-kind e2-day event in Berwyn. I had the privilege of showcasing our students, teachers, and iLeaders planning the conference on May 8th and 9th, 2015 at iEngage Berwyn.
On April 22, 2015 I achieved one of my educational goals... I was accepted into the Apple Distinguished Educator Community! I am looking forward to the ADE 2015 Institute in Miami, FL to connect with like-minded educators!
