About:  Dusty is an Iowa girl, turned Texas educator who began her teaching career with Lamar Consolidated ISD in 1998.  Throughout her years in the classroom Dusty has primarily taught kindergarten, and strives to bring a youthful enthusiasm to all her endeavors.

In 2009, Dusty attended Lamar CISD’s INTERACT Academy, and began putting technology directly in the hands of her students.  In October 2012 Dusty transitioned into a position as an Instructional Technology Specialist, and now enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for instructional technology with teachers across the district.  She especially enjoys brainstorming innovative instructional ideas with her fellow educators and observing as students reap the benefits.

Outside of her role as an educator, Dusty enjoys spending time with her husband and children.  She loves spending time outdoors, going to the beach and playing softball.
