Anne has been a tremendous resource for D12. This year, we have contracted with Anne to come in and work closely with our teacher teams to provide job-embedded professional development connected to our 1:1 roll out. Anne is also auditing our current implementation to help us develop our own internal plan for instructional technology improvement.
Anne has taken the time to get to know each team, their strengths and their needs. She has customized her time with them to make it as relevant and effective as possible. Anne brings a level of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to all that she does. She has the ability to build a trusting coaching relationship while nudging people to think differently and work outside of their comfort zone. Our relationship with Anne has been very beneficial and we hope to continue working with Anne in the future
Anne Truger is an energetic, engaging, and enthusiastic presenter that shares her knowledge on varying topics. But beyond that, she's 'real'. She is someone who is actually 'in the trenches' and connects to participants on a real level. Participants can expect to take back knowledge and experiences that they can share and use the next day in their classrooms.
When you attend a technology conference, you can either leave feeling inspired or stupid. Anne Truger is a master of making you feel empowered. She has the ability to share a plethora of knowledge to each and every participant and make you feel that she is only speaking to you. She has a deep understanding of pedagogy and differentiation. I can truly say that I have laughed and cried during her revivals of technology instruction. I walk away with pertinent information that always strengthens or changes my instruction the next day. I cannot sing her praises enough.
Anne Truger is a thought leader. I had the pleasure of serving on a technology integration committee for my home district which was designed to explore the best possible options for using technology in the present and insuring preparedness for the future. As a trusted and knowledgeable facilitator, Anne introduced us to cutting edge frameworks and assessment models that I still use in my daily work as a District Technology Coordinator. As a professional colleague, I'm glad to have Anne as a valued member of my learning network. I know I can always reach out to her for ideas and support!
Anne Truger was outstanding as the keynote speaker this year at Wauconda School District's Tech Fest! She engaged an audience from newbies to tech gurus about how change is inevitable and how we can embrace it. Her presentation left everyone excited for the day and her follow up sessions were packed with real life applications to immediately use in the classroom.
