Welcome to the Technology Mentors page! We are glad you have chosen to increase your professional development in technology!
The Technology Mentor program was established in the fall of 2016 to create a group of technology-focused educators to explore technology and support professional technology development within the district. The group has representatives from all buildings. These individuals have volunteered their time to become proficient with our current software and learn the best educational practices with technology.
These mentors are here to support your needs. Working with the Technology Integration Specialist, they are offering monthly afterschool or before-school (we are flexible) seminars on different applications. They are also available to help brainstorm and troubleshoot issues with software practice.
