After 14 years helping teachers integrate technology into the classroom – I became obsolete. Too much admin – not enough classroom. So…I took a teaching job. Now I’m in the trenches, teaching 9th grade English – and learning just how WRONG I was in my beliefs about ed tech integration. I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned – and to start over with a radical new mindset about teachers, students, and how to help them use technology in the classroom.
I’ve presented at TCEA, ASCD, ISTE, TxGoo, TIA, and several local conferences. I’ve presented for Google, BrightBytes, Nearpod, and other companies.
I’m the proud wife of a retired Navy Chief and the blessed mother of six wonderful kids. We have 2 wonderful grandkids and the third is on her way! We’re close and love to do things together.
The day doesn’t start until I’ve had my coffee. If you drive through the Starbucks on Wilshire, you can even order my drink by asking for “a Kim.”
