The Iowa 1:1 Institute exists to:
  • Help the Midwest’s 1:1 districts learn from each other about innovative teaching, learning, and administrative practices that are occurring in their districts;
  • Build excitement and ‘buzz’ around 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in the Midwest; and
  • Help others who are interested in 1:1 computing learn more about how to get started and be successful.
The institute is open to anyone interested in 1:1 laptop computing initiatives in P-12 schools, whether they currently are working in such a program or just want to learn more.

I have been teaching Spanish at Regis Middle School for 15 years. I am currently also the ELL teacher for the building. I will be presenting at ISTE2019 in June. Technology has become a passion that has reignited my passion for teaching. My students are 1:1 on iPads and I love to discover new ways for them to explore their world through their devices.
