Honorary Tech Ninja
Why do you make an excellent "Tech Ninja"?
I Andrea Keller is a world class educator that spends every waking moment encouraging the youth of today. She begins her day within a Special-Education classroom motivating and educating her students through the eyes of technology. She pushes her students to great heights, using various tools to enhance and engage. You name it, Mrs Keller and her “busy bees” have created and mastered it! Immediately after she wraps up activity within her classroom, Andrea leads other students into a world of unlimited possibilities through “Destination Imagination.” If there happens to be a spare second, Mrs. Keller can be found researching grants in order to ensure current technology and resources for her students. Andrea Keller is truly a cutting edge 21st century teacher!

There are so many other great tools out there (so many to name!)
Why is technology important in education?
Technology is important because it levels the playing field for all students. It offers opportunities for students and staff to build connections outside of the classroom.
