As a former high school English teacher, I used technology every day to engage students and enhance their learning. Now a Technology Integration Specialist at Manchester High School, I oversee the 1:1 Chromebook deployment, assist teachers in implementing educational technology in meaningful and purposeful ways, and provide G Suite for Education training at a district level. In May 2017, I presented on Blended and Personalized Learning at the Tech & Learning Live Conference in Boston, MA. Let me help your staff see how they can use G Suite for Education to improve instruction and engage students in meaningful learning! I can be reached @DisckoTech
