I recently earned my doctoral degree in Educational Technology Leadership with a concentration in technology integration and am currently an administrator for the Mount Olive Township School District in New Jersey. The current pandemic thrusted virtual instruction, distance learning, and instructional pedagogy to the forefront of education. Together, we need to be consistent in our commitment to lifelong learning if we are to stay nimble enough to meet the needs of all students.
