Jaime is currently in her 18th year of teaching. She has spent the previous 17 years teaching elementary levels in beautiful Central Oregon. In 2011, she also became a district-level instructional coach and curriculum leader. She is also a K-12 technology trainer and coach across her district, the state--and the country beginning in 2005.
In 2005, Jaime, along with two other teachers led her school through a conversion into a technology magnet school. In 2011, Jaime received the Apple Distinguished Educator Award and the Discovery Star Educator. Her school received the Apple Distinguished Program Award in 2012. Jaime was also chosen as a Seesaw Ambassador in 2017, as well as a Blue Ribbon Teacher for Tynker Coding, and an Ambassador for BookWidgets. She was also the Oregon teacher representative to National Geographic in 2007, has been chosen for many different teacher fellowships through NEH--and has worked at many different historical sites. She helped developed distance learning for Mt. Vernon--and most recently was chosen as a Monticello Barringer Fellow.
Jaime has presented at various conferences around Oregon--and was chosen to present at the national technology conference, ISTE, in 2017. She currently also is a contract coach supporting K-12 teachers all over the country through a company called BetterLesson.
As an experienced teacher, trainer, and coach, Jaime loves to help teachers feed, discover, or rediscover the passion that led them into the profession. She believes that happy and passionate teachers lead to happy and passionate learners. She is all about learning from failure--and sharing failures to help others learn. Being brave and having a growth-mindset guides Jaime in all areas of education, especially technology.
When she is not teaching, she is busy being a mom to a very active 17 year old, appreciating the beauty of Oregon, participating in classical music and musical theater performances, enjoying a good true crime documentary, and reading.
