Good episode? Give it some love!
Over the past year, I have had the absolute pleasure to work with the Pine Valley School District as a technology integrator. A small, rural district in Western New York, it has an impressive cadre of tech savvy teachers. One of the most inspirational is 3rd grade teacher, Kirsten Lewis.

A glance into Kirsten's classroom almost always brings a frenzy of students actively engaged in an array of tech infused activities. I've seen green screen activities, Lego We-Do Coding, as well as, OneNote Notebook Podcasting activities, to name just few. Kirsten is also an avid Black Mirror fan and is always willing to talk tech and culture!

Here is a little about Kirsten in her own words: Kirsten Lewis is a 3rd grade teacher with a passion for books and reading with a splash of tech integration. A 15 year veteran, she holds a master’s degree in literacy with certifications in elementary education, english, and literacy. She is a self-proclaimed introvert with a weakness for coffee.
