Teacher Turned EdTech Consultant

Monica started in EdTech as a 5th grade teacher in New York City. She served as part of the leadership team to bring 1:1 technology to classrooms at her school. Technology helped Monica address students’ unique learning needs and connect to authentic learning experiences. During the process of advocating for technology in her classroom and implementing it in her day-to-day teaching, Monica saw the opportunities classroom technology affords students. EdTech is a powerful teaching tool but takes time and dedication to select and implement. Class Tech Tips was founded to make it easier for teachers and administrators to find the right EdTech for their classrooms and schools to engage and empower students.
