K-12 Instructional Technology Specialist at Jackson County School SystemI serve as the district K-12 Instructional Technology specialist for Jackson County Schools, Georgia. My role includes serving as the primary Canvas administrator for the district--both technical and instructional-- as well as the professional learning coordinator, single sign-on administrator (via Clever), Gsuite administrator, and admin/manager of all our district-purchased instructional and digital resources. I am a Google Certified Innovator, Google for Education Trainer, Clever Certified Admin, Pear Deck Inspearational Educator, Seesaw Ambassador, Common Sense Certified Educator, and an Applied Digital Skills Trainer. I am a 2014 ISTE Emerging Leader and the 2014 Foreign Language Teacher of the Year for the state of Georgia. I am also the founder and co-leader for the Georgia Google Educator Group (GEG Georgia), and I have founded and organized approximately 7 EdCamps throughout North Georgia. In my career thus far, I have used and/or managed most all of the big Learning Management Systems in K-12, most notably D2L/Brightspace, Haiku Learning, Blackboard, Moodle, and now Canvas. After all that experience and exposure, I am unbiased when I say that Canvas is THE best K-12 LMS available, and I am thrilled to be working in a Canvas district!
