I have numerous experiences providing leadership and professional development in a variety of formats and audiences. I have created differentiated professional development at the school level that allows teachers choices in what area they pursue as well as the format. I have included links to staff development that I used at the school level in which teachers to learn at their own pace, interest and abilities .
I also have provided professional development at the district and state levels with a number of other instructional technology leaders in our district. The following links include presentations done at a Leadership Symposium for principals, Convergence Symposiums, NCTIES Conference, as well as a link to webinar that I did for Seesaw:
