Creativity is intelligence having fun

-Einstein

Hi! I'm Laura Blair. I'm currently the Technology and Creativity Lead in the middle school at Jakarta Intercultural School in Indonesia. After seven years abroad I'm headed home to Oregon in June to be closer to family. Hopefully this website will help me get a job doing something that I love at a progressive school in Oregon. Just to let you know, this site is in continuous development as I organize all of my resources and transfer them here from my school account.

What I do...

As a leader I know how to build relationships, communicate effectively, provide clarity, and follow through with initiatives all while providing inspiration.

Eleven years of supporting and motivating teachers through technology integration has allowed me to work with many different personalities. Getting all different kinds of people to work together towards a common goal is one of the things I do best.

I work closely with teachers and students integrating technology to help personalize and differentiate instruction.

I teach a Design Thinking inquiry class and manage the school’s new Makerspace program.

My strong personal skills allow me to work with teachers of all technology levels allowing them to take risks to try new and exciting learning activities with their students.

Being connected as an educator is extremely important to me and I use my connections to stay on top of technology developments and to share ideas.
