What is T2T?
Our Canvas Training Team presents the T2T Series ('Train 2 Train'). This monthly series is designed for those wonderful folks who are in the position of training their faculty and/or staff on using Canvas. Every month, we'll offer tips and tricks on ways to train on various topics and features in Canvas. Why... cuz we 'get' what you do... and we want you to keep doing it!

Training Team Lead at InstructureCanvas Trainer. Eighteen years in public school education - brick and mortar, online, and school administration. I love adopting animals, vacationing by the water, and college basketball. ______ At my heart - I am a teacher. When I was hired for my first English teaching job, in an inner city school district, the secretary gave me a set of keys and a map for how to get to my new classroom. When I unlocked the door I was met with an abundance of light from a large bank of windows highlighting the freshly waxed floors, rows of tables and chairs, and empty bookshelves. No textbooks, no supplies, no nothing. Surely this had to be a mistake? I quickly found out it was not. I also quickly found out that I can handle just about anything. Cutting my teeth in that room, in that district, with those students was the best thing that ever happened to me. I am resilient. I solve problems. I think on my feet. I am not afraid of challenges. And, at my heart, I am a teacher. This has served me well throughout my many transitions in my career. I found myself interviewing for a teaching position at cyber charter school in December 2004. I had, up to that point, made exactly one PowerPoint. Just like that, I was the only English teacher for this brand new cyber charter school. Everything was online, I taught every grade from 7 through 12, and I was in love with what technology could do for these students. I have seen it tear down walls between students and teachers, build students up who previously had no hope, and provide tremendous opportunities for children, teachers, and parents. That position allowed me to stretch in ways that I never imagined. In addition to teaching students I had the opportunity to also I design professional development for teachers who were on the cutting edge of education. I also project managed a change to a new learning management system. I know the power of educational technology, the importance of a teacher, the ability to reach through a computer screen and grab a student’s heart for learning - no matter his or her age.

Training Team Lead at Instructure Inc.Current: In the summer of 2016 I accepted a position as a full-time trainer with Instructure, and relocated across the country from Philadelphia to Salt Lake City Utah. I have since been promoted to Training Team Lead, where my passions for travel, content development and customer service are exercised regularly. When my calendar permits, I am an adjunct instructor at two universities where I teach online Graduate courses focused on technology in elementary education. Hobbies (when I can find the time) include: travel, photography, modeling foreign languages (Spanish, Italian and Mandarin), skiing, yoga, climbing, aerials, marksmanship, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, Victorian romance novels and gaming with my husband. My Journey: In my senior year of college I finally figured out that I was meant to take the path of a teacher. Upon graduating, I took a position as the Tech and Comp Sci Teacher at an inner-city Pk-8 school in N. Philadelphia. It was during those 5 years that I discovered my passion for teaching adults. I transitioned into a technology integration role at a software company, where I traveled the eastern seaboard conducting professional development trainings on a variety of technology products. Eventually, I settled down at a private K-12 school outside of Philadelphia, and it was at this school that I was first exposed to Canvas. Given my background in teaching and technology, I was designated the Canvas human as we deployed the products to our high school, middle school and eventually elementary school. I functioned at teacher trainer, field admin and administered the back end of Canvas for my school. I fell in love with Canvas so much that I sought to work directly for the company... and I am lucky enough to do just that!
