Sarah has served at St. John’s Lutheran in Orange, California, for 15 years. She has taught kindergarten and 3rd grade and currently serves as the Director of Technology and Instructional Design K-8. She is a Concordia University Wisconsin graduate with a degree in early childhood education. She has a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Concordia University Irvine.
Sarah believes technology is an integral part of education because it helps students become global learners who collaborate with others and use higher-level thinking skills that go beyond the textbook and paper-and-pencil activities. As a former TEC21 participant, she is excited to be a facilitator because it gives her the opportunity to share her knowledge and use of “the awesome technology resources in the world with other Lutheran educators so they can become technology leaders in their classrooms and schools.”
