Educational Technology Specialist
Bio: 

I received my Bachelor's Degree from San Diego State University and my Master's in Muliticultural Education from National University. I've served as a teacher for 8 years and a Dean of students for 2 years as well. In 2011, I had the honor to receive the AZTEA Teacher of the Year award. Currently, I'm an Educational Technology Specialist for the Florence Unified School District and have been for the past 5 years. In addition to that, I'm also a Certified Nearpod Pionear. I give professional development trainings for our staff, students and community members in order to ensure that they are ready to use technology to their advantage and work "smarter". I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two wonderful boys, Gabriel, and Sebastian. To sum things up...I love fish tacos...

Tech Tool: WeVideo https://www.wevideo.com/

WeVideo is a web-based video editing tool that can be used across multiple platforms. I can be used on a PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Chrome OS as well. It has all of the capabilities that many of the paid, installation-based programs have, but is much more easy to use due to it's user friendly user interface. One of the key features that makes this such a powerful tool is the integration to many cloud-based services such as Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, and YouTube just to name a few. These services make uploading media as well as publishing videos to multiple sources a snap. Everything from digital storytelling to narration videos all can be done with ease using WeVideo. Instead of consuming the internet with your students, start creating something for the internet with WeVideo.
