My name is Sabrina and I am a technoholic. By day I am a Technology Instructional Specialist in a K-12 School System. My main focus is administering our student longitudinal data and test-generating tool. We use both to make data-driven instructional decisions. I also teach computer applications working primarily with multimedia programs including Google Apps in Education, iLife for iOS, PowerPoint, Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Elements, Photoshop Elements, and any other high-energy program that's thrown my way. I have also worked as an elementary computer lab instructor, a regular education teacher as well as a training and curriculum specialist for the military's child care system.
