As a Tech Integration Specialist, Katie helps teachers and administrators transform classrooms through the use of technology. She collaborates with teachers to incorporate this technology in a meaning way. This is done through supporting teachers to compose effective technology-infused, content-based lessons. Drawing from her past experiences, Katie loves to work directly with teachers and understands the scope of the role. Adding technological elements can be daunting, however she does what is necessary to set teachers up for success. Reach out to talk to her about 21st century learning, teacher goals, strategies and how integrating technology is the key to bring those together.
Katie holds a bachelor degree in Children’s Literature and Theater for the Young from Eastern Michigan University and a Masters in Education from Northwestern University. She has spent time as a Education Recruiter as well as spent many years in the classroom as a 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher. In her spare time, Katie loves to go on adventures (both in Chicago and out), (newly) practicing yoga, training for races, and the most current hobby added is learning Italian.
