Ann Brucker is a Technology Integration Specialist for the biggest school district in the Big Sky State. She taught 4th and 5th grade for 15 years before turning to the tech side, and since taking on this new challenge, she has discovered a whole new layer of learning. Over the last 5 years, Ann has officially embraced her inner geek by becoming a Breakout EDU game reviewer, author, and official trainer; a Nearpod Certified Trainer; a Google Certified Innovator; an authorized Google Education Trainer; and an Apple Teacher.
Ann is a graduate of the NEA's Teacher Leadership Institute, and serves as a board member for both the Montana Council for Computers and Technology in Education and the Northwest Council for Computers in Education. In her free time, Ann explores nature with her adorable family, sings, paints, and generally tries to avoid anything dangerous like sportsball. What she lacks in athletic prowess she makes up for in passion and enthusiasm for learning. Her motivation stems from seeing the way technology engages students, and it is her mission to harness that energy so that those students will one day become the ideators and iterators who change the world.
