Thoughts and reflections on educational issues from Instructional Technology Coach, Lisa Westman.
Author: Lisa Westman
Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! I am Lisa Westman and I am passionate about the field of education. I have thirteen years of experience teaching gifted humanities, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. Currently I am enjoying being a 6-8 instructional coach that specializes in differentiation. I lead professional development for K-8 teachers, serve on the District Leadership Team, District Highly Qualified Staff Committee, District Instructional Coaching Team, Middle School Data Team and I am the 6-8 advanced learner case manager.
I have presented at ASCD, IAGC, The Illinois Computing Educators Conference, Illinois Educator Technology Conference, the Illinois Council of Instructional Coaches, and have facilitated professional development for many school districts. I have been fortunate to have received media attention for some of the innovative units I have facilitated; most notably was the SharkTank simulation I facilitated. This educational experience provided student participants the opportunity to Skype with Mark Cuban.
When I am not thinking about education, I enjoy spending time with my husband (also an educator), our two children, attending Bar Method classes and going for long walks with my girlfriends.
I would love to hear from you. Follow me on twitter, follow this blog, or email me: email@example.com
