Who Am I?
My name is Sarah Kiefer. I began as a 5th grade teacher after graduating from the University of Dayton with a Bachelor’s of Science (Elementary Ed 1-8). I really felt like I was in the right spot.
A handful of years go by … I marry an amazing man and we have a baby. I also moved up to teach 7th & 8th grade Social Studies. Now I felt like I was in the right spot.
After two more babies, our school went 1:1 with Chromebooks. I was already very much on board with Google. I had been quickly won over by Google’s ease of use & the amazing power of the cloud. [What??I don’t have to email files to myself and remember to email them back? Nor do I have rely on flash drives?? AND I don’t have to stand in line at the copier because I share it all digitally??? That’s crazy talk!]. My principal asked if I’d be on the middle school’s task force for the implementation. I was honored and excited. This was truly the RIGHT spot for me.
Currently, I am a Technology Integration Specialist for our district. My whole job is to support the teachers in our district implement technology in their classrooms. Really! I get paid to show them new tricks, tips, or ways of utilizing technology in their classroom AND I often am IN their rooms to lend a hand. Can I say this is a dream come true?!?!
