Tech Tools for the Everyday Teacher

About me.


Who am I?

I am a 6th grade teacher and Tech Integration Specialist at an International School in South Korea. I received my BA in Elementary Education at Wheaton College, IL.  I received my MA in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Technology at University of Colorado.  I have taught 6th grade, 5th grade, and grad students in the past.

Why did I create this website?

  • To make teachers aware of free, web tools that can be used in the classroom.
  • To showcase the technology of tomorrow
  • To educate teachers on the uses of technology in the classroom
  • To receive ideas from other teachers in the field so that there is an exchange of information
  • To offer ideas of how these tools can be used in the classroom
  • To marry education and technology

Hopefully you enjoy the site – please feel free to comment or present creative uses of technology in your classroom.

  1. I like your commitment and dedication to making technology apart of K-12 curriculum. We could use more educators like you. Swing by our (in progress) site and see what you think. We could use your help.

  2. Very interesting posts here. I’m a home educator, and I’m always looking for free tools I can use with my own children, and also in a co-op setting. Lately, I’ve been looking for tools that would enable kids to collaborate online to create something or do projects together.

    Thank You Thank You Thank You! The information and resources that you have provided are just what I am looking for. As a “technology immigrant” my accent is very strong. I am working very hard to reshape my thinking, my voice, and my path. I have the amazing opportunity now to explore and apply what I can learn. So very exciting! Thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to explore and reinvent my teaching.

      Thanks for all you do,

    Thanks for all of your great information. I am currently a grad student and part-time intervention teacher. Do you have any information on where I can apply for grants for technology to use in the classroom?
