Workshop Facilitator, Michigan District
As a Lutheran school teacher for the past 25 years, Karla has taught grades 1, 2, 3 and 5. Currently she serves as 5th-grade teacher at St. Peter Lutheran in Macomb, Michigan. She is a 1994 graduate from Concordia Chicago and holds a MAT from Saginaw Valley State University, including an endorsement as a literacy specialist.
Karla is passionate about teachers helping teachers, and says it was the driving force behind her decision to become a facilitator for the TEC21 program. “Besides learning about ways technology can increase student learning, TEC21 teachers have the gift of time each month to actively explore and implement their newfound knowledge.” Karla loves the way each member of the TEC21 cohorts support, encourage and celebrate one another.
