Hey hey! I'm so excited to have the opportunity to work with teachers across Texas! I'm an instructional technology coordinator in Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD, a Google Certified Trainer, and a pumpkin enthusiast living in San Marcos, Texas! I love bringing the world to students through the GSuite tools and allowing them to authentically engage with newly acquired knowledge to hone newly acquired skills. My main focus at work is removing stressful barriers that prevent teachers from enjoying the benefits of using technology. At home, my cat demands my focus -- but he likes to garden too so that's is ok.
