Meet Alyssa Henley, Technology Integration Coach/ GATE District Coordinator


What’s your first and last name?

  • Alyssa Henley

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • Technology Integration Coach/ GATE District Coordinator

How are you involved in education?

  • I bring new technologies and ideas to our district. I help teachers integrate technology to enhance their curriculum. To take away some of the fear of trying new things, teachers schedule their classes with me and I work with the class modeling and co-teaching how to infuse the technology into their curriculum. I also provide professional development for the district and meet with teachers one-on-one. I also coordinate and teach our district’s gifted students.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • My ideal class is an environment where students are secure enough to build their confidence by taking risks and learning from their mistakes. I want students learning life principles and skill sets that will help my students be college and career ready.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • Marketing yourself to your students ( past experience as a Vice President of Public Relations) , new teachers 101, active learning, technology integration, bringing science to life,, or Chris Biffle’s Whole Brain Power Teaching.
