Andrea Keller is a world class educator that spends every waking moment encouraging the youth of today. She begins her day within a Special-Education classroom motivating and educating her students through the eyes of technology. She pushes her students to great heights, using various tools to enhance and engage. You name it, Mrs Keller and her “busy bees” have created and mastered it! Immediately after she wraps up activity within her classroom, Andrea leads other students into a world of unlimited possibilities through “Destination Imagination.” If there happens to be a spare second, Mrs. Keller can be found researching grants in order to ensure current technology and resources for her students. Andrea Keller is truly a cutting edge 21st century teacher!
Sara Hunter is a passionate educator, enthusiastic about providing students authentic learning experiences that are relevant to the growing demands of the 21st century. Having taught 3rd grade for many years, Sara is embarking on a new journey as an elementary STEM teacher and coach in Zionsville, Indiana. She has the honor of cultivating curiosity with 380 students in grades 1 through 4 through weekly inquiry-based and hands-on labs and projects. Sara is also piloting Flipped PD as a collaborative conversation model (seeflippedpd.org for more details). In addition to her classroom pursuits, Sara also directs children’s theatre and facilities a student council group. In June 2012, Sara had the privilege of presenting a poster station, License to Blog, a student blogging journey, at the International Society of Technology in Education conference.
