The best place to start is here, and the best time to start is now.
I often trick myself out of doing things because I think I need to wait until... I get older, I have more experience, I can put together X Y Z, the timing is right, the place is right, etc. etc. etc. You know how it goes.
I think we tell ourselves those things a lot. We are always waiting to be there before we begin. It's a little like wanting to be clean before you take a shower.
For a long time I wanted to jump into EdTech, and learn more about how to use the technology tools I had in my 6th grade ELA classroom... but I didn't have the confidence, or the time, and any other number of excuses I found.
I know I am not alone in feeling this way, and (at some point) someone who reads this will be feeling that way too.
However, if bringing more tech into your classroom is something you want to do, I am here to tell you that you don't need to be an expert to begin, AND that you have come to the right place!
I am so pleased that I finally took the leap, because it has lead me to a rewarding career in EdTech Consulting, where I get to help other teachers transform their classrooms (and lives) through the use of fun and exciting technologies.
I want to help deliver simple methods, tools, and tricks for enhancing education with (and sometimes without) technology.
