Heather Dowd is a teacher, education technology coach, science enthusiast, traveler, photographer, and most of all, a learner. She has worked as a physics teacher, instructional designer, and education technology coach in Japan, USA, Mexico, and Singapore. She currently enjoys leading professional learning workshops to help teachers create engaging experiences for students. Teaching English with the JET program in Kumamoto, Japan inspired her to become a teacher and the adventure hasn’t stopped. Heather is a Google for Education Certified Innovator/Trainer, Apple Distinguished Educator, and a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified Educator who believes that students should have access to current technology in order to be creative in ways that weren’t possible when she was in school. When she's not at school, she likes to travel, take photos, spend time with her husband, and get in touch with her artistic side. (A good day is doing all four at the same time.)

Heather is the author of the book, "Classroom Management in the Digital Age", along with her colleague, Patrick Green. (Buy it on Amazon here.)
