Jenni Jones is an innovative educator with a passion for shaking up the traditional classroom. She is all about making school a place students and teachers run to! She loves to play with tech tools to see how they can both simplify and improve upon the task at hand. But it's not just gadgets and gizmos for Jenni – she's a champion of belonging and inclusion, making sure every student feels safe, connected, and empowered. Her work as a teacher, coach, mentor, and administrator continues to bring her joy 37 years into her career. If you like to play with big and small ideas, and you don’t take yourself too seriously, you have found the right partner in learning.
Lisa has been the STEAM Hub, and CCL Administrative Assistant at the Southern Oregon ESD for the past 6 years. She helps with many of the “extras” required for professional development, events, and as a support for teachers, as well as students. She has a Masters in Social Science with Education Concentration, and helps with various SOESD events held throughout each year. She is hoping to venture in future promotion of the “A”/Arts in STEAM education.
She has lived in the Rogue Valley most of her life, and enjoys camping, singing in her band, gardening, walking, and decorating for as many holidays as possible. She’s looking forward to introducing Bee-bots at this year’s EdTech Summit, and hopes that participants will have a lot of fun using this educational source of coding for their elementary classrooms.
