My name is Amy Oelschlager and I am a Nerdy Teacher from Minnesota. I spent the last 4 years (2007-2011) teaching in Texas where my daily experiences and ideas inspired this little blog. In June, 2011, I moved back north to be closer to family and I’m now working as an Elementary Technology Integration Specialist.
As a classroom teacher I was never satisfied with our curriculum and was constantly writing my own units that allowed for students to be creative and use technology. After two years in the classroom and countless hours spent designing technology integrated units, in 2009 I decided to begin working on my Masters in Technology Integration…I graduated in the Spring of 2011 and was lucky enough to get a job as an Elementary Technology Integration Specialist!
