Sara Boucher is a K-5 technology teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a rare commodity, in part, because she was born and raised in Las Vegas. Currently she is cultivating the next crop of super-geeks in her technology class. They are a spunky bunch who are growing to love technology just as much as Sara does. Her value as a nerd extends well beyond the classroom. She has organized the very first Edcamp Vegas and also performed professional development trainings on a variety of issues such as; SMARTBoard use and application, understanding Dropbox, designing e-portfolios for UNLV student teachers, Google Drive, Project-Based learning, Coding, and basic computer applications.
In her ample free time, Sara is also the Steven G. Schorr Elementary webmaster and unpaid de-facto ECS. As a hobby Sara also tutors after school, is earning a master’s degree in Educational Technology, is working on a blended learning certification, and enjoys long walks on the beach. Sara is invigorated everyday by the ever increasing use of technology among her students and their ever increasing understanding and enjoyment of it.
