Shawn Lieth - Technology Coordinator
Successful use of technology helps our teachers and students reach new heights. Especially in the current virtual learning environment, having a technology coordinator is essential. Shawn Lieth is helping staff and families make this important transition through device management and troubleshooting of hardware and software issues. In a typical year, over 200 iPads are used at Mt. Bethel each day for individualized instruction and project-based learning. Shawn ensures our iPads are up to date, keeps student software subscriptions current to avoid breaks in access, and fixes technical issues that could impede learning. Her time spent making sure technology is constantly working helps teachers focus on the critical instruction our students need.
Shawn also helps administration prepare for online high stakes testing, publishes the Mt. Bethel Tech Talk Blog, and assists in the production of the morning announcement broadcast, keeping parents, teachers and students informed and able to focus on what's truly important: our students.
