Stephanie Coates, 4th grade teacher, Hickory Ridge Elementary School, Brunswick
The IT Master's Program compelled me to become a technology teacher-leader in my district. As a result of the numerous technology projects I engaged in throughout the program, I developed a passion for instructional technology. This has inspired me to present at many technology conferences as well as provide technology professional development courses to my colleagues. My role as a technology teacher-leader is reflective of the encouragement I received from my professors and the success I experienced as a student in the IT Master's program.
