My name is Christie Brooks. I live in Gilbert, Arizona with my husband and three children. I have two daughters  and one son . Currently, I teach 4th and 5th grade PACE (Program for All Children to Excel) at Arizona Connections Academy.

I am in the graduate EdTech program at Boise State University. I am excited to be a part of this program and learn new things to use in my virtual classroom. I want to learn how to make my virtual teaching sessions more effective for both me and my students. There are many resources for teachers to use in a brick and mortar school. Unfortunately, it is not as easy to come across materials that are compatible in the virtual classroom. I looked into many programs and feel this program is the best fit for me to achieve my goals. The Master of Educational Technology program offers the educational opportunity I am looking for to help me attain my professional teaching goals in the virtual school environment.
