About Me: Suzanne Beard

suzieI am the Technology Director for The Anthony School. We are a small, non-profit school located in Little Rock, Arkansas. I have worked for TAS since 1992. I started working part-time during college and then continued on after graduation from the University of Arkansas to teach computer class and performed various other teaching roles. As technology grew and changed so did my job and I eventually had to work outside the classroom to focus on making sure our technology was maintained and to assist teachers and students with their technology needs. Currently, I also conduct professional development workshops for our faculty, sponsor our Tech Team and this school year we have begun a Robotics club as well. It is such a blessing to work at a school with such amazing resources.

I truly have a passion for technology in education. I believe that when used correctly it can be an incredible tool to allow our students to collaborate and to expand learning beyond the four walls of a classroom.  I am very excited about our 1: 1 laptop program that started this school year. So far it has gone extremely well! (2012-2013). I am looking at online programs to complete my graduate degree. I want to get my Master Degree in Educational Technology and/or Instructional Design.

In 1994 I married my high school sweetheart and best friend.  We have one son who is eleven and he is such a neat kid. I can honestly say we are a family of computer geeks. We enjoy spending time together and we are all Apple fans. Apples Rule, PC’s Drool!!! I love the exciting field of educational technology and it’s so great that my family supports and enjoys technology innovation as well. I feel truly blessed to have a supportive family and to have a job that I am  passionate about.

This blog will offer  links, ideas, and eventually twitter chats. My goal is to help our teachers develop a Personal Learning Network to help them with the ever-changing technology and provide ideas for integrating these useful technologies into the classroom.
