Brief I have been integrating technology with my students for many years. I spent five years in a
Reflection 1:1 Ipad environment, and three years ago became certified by my school district as a
Blended/Online Learning Instructor. The following is an excerpt from a letter of
recommendation written by my former Technology Coach, for the position of Technology
Integration Specialist at a local middle school.

“Rachel has been able to incorporate technology appropriately in order to establish a typically active,
often collaborative, frequently creative and constructive learning environment. She makes a concerted
effort every day to create a culture of learning in which every student has an opportunity to engage in
worthwhile and rewarding learning experiences through the use of technology. She has her students
upload to their THREE RING digital portfolio on a regular basis to showcase their work. I could go on
about specific instances - suffice it to say that her students seamlessly employ technology daily in the
classroom to show understanding of content and to expand their knowledge.

Rachel’s enthusiasm and passion for integrating technology engages others and brings excitement to
the learning process for all. She is extremely dedicated and patient in assisting her students as well
as colleagues to effectively apply technology as a tool for learning. I have recently had several of our
staff come and talk to me about how much they admire and respect Rachel’s abilities and knowledge
about using technology in her classroom.

As a learner, Rachel fully understands that unless she is constantly learning and improving her own
skills and abilities, she cannot effectively impart the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for her to
be an effective teacher. “

I am confident in my abilities to work with students and lead teachers in using technology in
a classroom setting. The school I am currently at has been slowly adding devices for use by
grade levels, and we are currently 4:1 in primary grades and 2:1 in intermediate. To best
serve our students, our teachers need to become far more adept at integrating technology,
outside of standardized test prep and typing a report. I am in a position to provide the
knowledge, expertise, and training for the staff.
