New Caney ISD technology specialists nominated for

Next Generation Leadership program
 

Feb. 2, 2016 | Thinking Innovatively | School districts across the country nominated their top candidates to be recognized as the "Next Generation Leaders in School Technology,” which is a new program developed and co-sponsored by the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and EdScoop.

 

Elementary Instructional Technology Specialist LaSonya Cobbs and Secondary Instructional Technology Specialist Gretta Rogne were nominated to represent New Caney ISD as the next generation of leaders in school technology.

 

“They are both very valuable members of the Digital Learning team who provide technology professional development for all employees in the district,” said Jeannie Reed, director of digital learning. “On any given day you can find them in the district meeting with teachers and students helping them integrate technology throughout the curriculum.”

 

Cobbs and Rogne, both former teachers, are always looking out for what is best for teachers and students when making decisions.

 

“I have no doubt that this is why they were chosen as the finalists from Texas for the Next Generation Leaders Program from COSN,” said Reed.

 

To qualify for the Next Generation Leaders program, candidates must have no more than five years working as an education technology professional and demonstrate leadership in the areas they serve.

 

The winners of the 2016 "Next Generation Leaders" will be selected based on votes and will be officially announced at the CoSN 2016 Annual Conference.

 

You can vote for Cobbs and Rogne by visiting Next Generation Leadership Program. Voting ends at midnight, Friday, Feb. 19.
