About Me

My name is Peggy A. Reimers. I am one of four Directors of Professional Development at TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association.) I develop and facilitate professional development across the curriculum with G-Suite for Education, makerspaces, Breakout EDU physical and digital, robotics, and other current technology trends.

I started my teaching career in 1984 as a public school teacher. My first school was located in Judith Gap, Montana as a first/second combination teacher. The school enrollment: 100 students K-12.

I shared my passion for technology and my creative, hands-on approach with elementary students for 24 years. My last teaching job was at a fifth and sixth grade intermediate school. I finished my teaching career as an elective computer lab teacher. During this time I was lucky to teach robotics and computer literacy.

The curriculum I designed for my fifth and sixth grade technology classes followed the Texas technology applications curriculum. The Texas technology applications six strands were based on the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS•S) and performance indicators developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE): creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making; digital citizenship; and technology operations and concepts.

The last two years, I was the Bastrop ISD instructional technology specialist for six elementary campuses.

I am proud to be a LEGO Education US Master Educator and Advisor. I have been a Google for Education Certified Trainer since 2010. I also hold the Google Certified Educator Level 1 and 2 certifications. My super power is figuring out which LEGO minifig hides in each shiny sealed bag and taking care of two rescues, Boo and Tuff.

Please take note of these 2 VERY IMPORTANT items:

1. The artifacts for each indicator are colored ISTE green.

2. My students are teachers except when it comes to the TCEA robotics contest. My audience is both teachers and students.
