She holds a masters in educational technology, teaches as a Lead Learner for CUE and serves as a director on the CapCUE board, a local CUE affiliate. She is also a proud teacher consultant for the Area 3 Writing Project. She enjoys torturing students with her humor and reward all who laugh at her jokes.

She works as a middle school English/CTE Teacher and Instructional Coach at Aliso Viejo Middle School. She has a passion for self-directed learning using social media, particularly with Twitter and #CUEchat.
Tom Covington and Mike Jephcott are two teachers from Bassett Unified School District in La Puente, California, talking about Technology Integration, giving ideas, troubleshooting, talking about SAMR and why we need tech in classrooms. This was a great way to get PD out to their teachers and they thought they should share it with everyone. Here it is. Visit their district page here: www.bassettusd.org and their resources at www.tomtalksabout.com.
Together, they make up TOSAs Talking Tech.
Lisa currently teaches 5th grade, has been named Teacher of the Year at her school, and has been an Ed Tech innovator in her district for over 15 years. She is a PBS Digital Innovator and received the Crystal Apple Award in 2010.
Nancy began her career as a technology teacher and is now an instructional technology coach, helping other teachers meaningfully integrate new and shiny things into their classrooms. She loves collaborating with others, her family, coffee, and British comedy (not necessarily in that order).
What is a CUE Spark?
A CUE Spark is an inspired, real-time short-form blog post (or a long-form social media post) that:
previews or reviews a particular digital resource
builds audience relevancy and connectivity to the resource
inspires the audience to click and visit the resource (think #eduawesomeclickbait)
When you see it, you can “spark” it!

Together, they make up the wacky Check This Out podcast team.
