Amy Mayer, founder of friEdTechnology, is a nationally known speaker and trainer and a veteran public school educator who is a sworn enemy of standardization. Amy first worked in education as a college professor after earning a master’s degree in English then later entered the “real world” as a teacher of 6th grade, later working in 9th grade, 10th grade, 11th grade and you guessed it, 12th grade in the subjects of French and English.
Most of her work as a teacher was with students from poverty who were not motivated by grades or her approval. This led to a moment she says every teacher eventually has which leads to the seminal "teacher story." This story explains the moment we find our passion for teaching.
Briefly, Amy left the education realm to work in the technology department of a large school district where she did crazy things like manage servers before finding her passion for Instructional Technology. She also served as a language arts consultant for Texas Region 4 and a curriculum & instruction consultant for Texas Region 6. For three years she served Huntsville ISD as Director for Staff Development and District Initiatives, then later, she returned to her first love, Instructional Technology, serving as a director for the largest private school in Houston.
