Title: Technology Coordinator
Class: Managing iPads with an MDM and Apple Deployment- Easier than you thought!

I have been the technology coordinator for Pike-Delta-York Local Schools in Delta, Ohio for 5 years.  Before that I taught High School Mathematics for 10 years at Delta High School.  I have my BS in Integrated Mathematics and my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from Bowling Green State University.  I have presented at numerous educational technology conferences, including the Ohio Educational Technology Conference 4 times, as well as helping organize and present at the Detroit Tigers annual Math Day for 5 years.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
