My Professional

Learning Community 

     I am a long time member of TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) and have been certified in the TCEA Campus Technology Specialist Program and the Technology Director Certification Program.  I love attending the TCEA Convention in Austin each February, as well as the TCEA TOTS Convention (Elementary Technology Convention) in Galveston each summer.  I am also a member of ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) and had the great honor of attending the ISTE conference in San Antonio (very overwhelming, but awesome).  Throughout this process, I have discovered how technology and digital tools can enhance learning in ways that I had never considered before.  I am a certified Google Educator Level 1 and Level 2 and plan to become a Google Trainer soon.
