Stories from the documentary
Who am I? I am a passionate special education teacher who lives in Tucson Arizona. I have been integrating tech tools into my classrooms since 1994. When I became a special education teacher in 2011, I discovered some students could not access parts of their Gen Ed curriculum. It became my mission to find tools for student success. I have been lucky enough to share my passion to local , state, and national educators for the past 10 years. This is my first international conference, and I am excited to be here with you today!
