Hi! Bonjour! Bom dia! I am Sandra Beck. I have been a member of MassCUE through the MassCUE Champions for about 2 years. I have been an educator for more than 10 years. I began as a teacher assistant and quickly became a French teacher. My goal has always been to teach but always to learn. When meeting people, I always try to set a safe and loving environment for others to learn from me and for me to learn from them. As technology has changed throughout the years, the roles of educators and students have evolved. Technology for me has even the playing field.

My goal for MassCUE Board of Directors is to continue to share these opportunities with educators around us.
