My philosophy recently has been to suspend expectations. As soon as things start flowing along, change seems inevitable. With that being said, I am constantly learning to pivot and adapt. I know for many of you, technology is causing similar feelings, and I am here to help.


Feel free to reach out via a phone call, an email, by booking me on my YouCanBookMe site, or by joining my Ed. Tech. Office Hours daily from 10:00 am to noon. Together, we will get through this stronger than ever!

Welcome to my Webpage, Gators!

I can still help, even when we are working from home. I am trying to keep my appointments up to date, but things are changing day-to-day. Still, feel free to schedule time with me on this site. We can still meet via Zoom and even do screenshares. 

The Ed. Tech. Team is also offering Virtual Office Hours on Wednesdays at 1:30. Click the link for more information.

 

Thank you, 

Caroline Lightfoot
