Santa Cruz County Office of Education
Coordinator, Curriculum & Instruction
Santa Cruz, CA
I work as a Coordinator of Curriculum & Instruction for the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, where I provide professional development and technical support in the areas of education technology and science & engineering. My background is that of a teacher-leader, I integrated digital media into my own Alternative Education and Elementary School classrooms while training other teachers how to use new technologies to support student success. For the past 12 years I have worked at the County Office level, designing workshops and trainings for teachers and administrators, providing leadership on new technologies, and assisting districts with technology planning. I am passionate about the power of education technology in providing opportunity, equity of access, and options for all students regardless of socio-economic or geographical challenges. I also find time to have fun with sports, travel, and reading adventure/survival books.
