The 2015-16 school year has been a year of change and growth for me. Moving from my 2nd grade classroom to a brand new STEAM Middle School has proved to be both exciting and challenging. As the Integration Technologist, my job includes duties such as: Chromebook repairs, instructional technology, and media specialist. Early on, my principal shared his vision of our makerspace which would eventually include all of the popular makerspace gizmos and gadgets, as well as, several 3D printers. But...I am getting ahead of myself. We started the school year in an unused wing of a high school. My "area" was a desk under a stairwell and my budget was $0. I knew that we would be moving to our permanent location after our winter break and that I would eventually be given a budget, but in the meantime, I was determined to get the makerspace up and running so it would be part of our evolving school culture.
