I gained my teaching experience teaching English in Chile, where I obtained my bachelor degree in Education and English teacher license. Then I decided to challenge myself and obtained my M.A in Instructional Technology at the University of Northern Iowa.

Through all my years of experience in the field of education, I have learned that the classroom culture is upside down. The leaders in the classroom must be the students, not the teachers. They have to demonstrate that they have the knowledge and the skills to be successful in life. We are in the classroom to make them exceed their expectations about themselves, to challenge their knowledge, and to test their skills.

I see technology integration as a skill that every teacher should master. There is a thin line between using the technology and integrating technology that teachers can decide to cross or not. It is my job as Instructional Designer to help those teachers to cross that line and master that skill.

I can assist you with...

  • Integrating mobile technologies into your classroom.
  • Developing courses using Kirkwood’s Learning Management System.
  • Flipping Learning Model.
  • Design of your Kirkwood e-portfolio.
  • Assisting with multimedia production.
