Don’t be afraid to try something new!

Hi, I’m The Tech Lovin’ Teacher (aka Amanda). ​ If you ​haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE using technology in my classroom.  I’m here to help new and veteran teachers embrace the use of technology in their classrooms and everyday lives. In my free time, I love to travel in my RV with my pup, Charlie. Check out my travel musings here.

Whether it involves using technology to create curriculum or having students use different apps/tools to enrich their learning experience, I love to incorporate technology in all my teaching practices.  My understanding of incorporating technology didn’t happen overnight, however, I chose to try new things and my students were rewarded with a more enriching learning experience because of that.  I hope this site will give you new ideas of how to incorporate technology and enrich your own teaching practices, as well as give you a glimpse at some of the successful products I’ve personally used with my students.

In my nearly 20 years of experience, I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade in the US and overseas.  I have also had the privilege of being a Special Education teacher and Educational Technology Teacher on Special Assignment.  Recently, I transitioned back into the classroom from being an elementary assistant principal.

As you navigate through this website, I challenge you to:

  1. Review some of my recent (or older) articles for new ideas.  Don’t forget to leave a comment about your own thoughts and suggestions!
  2. Sign up for my free products page to access resources available exclusively to newsletter subscribers.  I promise I won’t send more than one newsletter a month.
  3. Connect with me by email, on Instagram, on Facebook, and on my YouTube page.  I love to hear from other educators!
