With 20+ years of experience in the technology industry, Michelle brings a wealth of experience to the table. She started her career as a customer support manager, partnering with school districts nationwide to support their administration and student needs. In time, she transitioned to training, where she developed resources to help employees learn about new programs and offerings to accurately meet their customers’ needs. Currently, she leads a team of account managers dedicated to their district partners to drive student achievement and promote a passion for lifelong learning.
My mother and husband are both lifelong math teachers, between the two of them they have worked in rural, private, urban and suburban school districts. Currently my mother is a rural educator and my husband is in an urban school and I hear about the work they do in their classrooms every single day to support student learning, and the challenges they face with funding, lack of resources, and parental engagement are unfathomable with the expectations they have put on them.
Watching my own children’s experience over the years, they are now 20 and 12, in a district that provides for their students all the resources they could want and comparing that to the experience my mother and husband have every day, drives my passion to support students, no matter where they live, find their desire to be a lifelong learner because that is what will continue to drive creativity and innovation in our society to drive us forward.
