I appreciate the Georgetown community welcoming me in my 7th year with the district. Affectionately called "Ms. CC" by students, I previously served the campuses of Village, Frost, Pickett, McCoy, and Ford Elementary; also Tippit Middle School and Williamson Co Juv. Justice Academy, Forbes and Benold Middle Schools. I believe that every student deserves GREAT teachers, and I love that my career allows me to grow the knowledge and skills of educators integrating technology into our classrooms.
Before coming to Georgetown, I worked in social services for the State of Texas and taught math & science at a magnet middle school. I was inspired to pursue educational technology when my mother, a 40-year veteran teacher retired citing she "didn't want to learn anything else about a computer". I was the first Technology Coordinator in Beaumont ISD, helping to lead the implementation of a 1:1 iPad & SMARTboard integration program in a Title-1 middle school with over 600 students.
In 2014, I relocated to the heart of Texas to join the Digital Learning team in Georgetown ISD. I have supporting digital learning on every grade level in Georgetown; PK - 12th grades.
I serve as the TCEA Area 13 Director for Central Texas (professional organization for educational technology in Texas). I have presented at or served as a consultant for many international organizations such as ISTE, US Dept of Education, FETC, Tech & Learning, Google Summits, and SxSWedu.
I am a member of the Motivated Mu Beta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho. I am a proud double alumna of Lamar University, where I earned my bachelor's & Master of Technology Leadership degrees. In the coming year, I will begin my doctoral studies.
