What session are you presenting at Fall CUE this year?

CUE Rock Star 365

What inspired you to put this session together?

Being a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert for four years has given me insights, access and expertise in hacking the classroom for maximum effect with Microsoft tools! Plus, I love sharing tips and tricks and hacks with my fellow educators!

Why should someone attend?

Coming to my CUE Rock Star 365 session will give you hands on time with some amazing Microsoft tools, the chance to see how those tools actually work in a REAL classroom AND valuable points (maybe even a badge) on the Microsoft Educator Network! Plus, a support crew (me) as you continue to use these incredible tools in your own classroom!

What’s your CUE Story?

I’d been presenting at CUE for several years when Jon Corippo reached out to me because CUE wanted to branch out into the Microsoft world. He proclaimed me the “Microsoft Queen” in California, so how could I resist?
