About Fran

I teach Instructional Technology in the Graduate Education Centers for Professional Development for Educators at Notre Dame College and Lake Erie College. As a dyslexic who has overcome difficulties with traditional learning models, I understand the frustrations students and their parents have when the child is having difficulty reading and writing. My specialty is finding the right online webpages, apps or software support to assist the student. I am a national Trainer for Kurzweil Reading and Writing software and I know where to find appropriate resources to help the struggling reader, writer or English language learner. When technology is not the answer, I take the time work with the student on areas where they are having difficulty and partner with them to help them succeed.

I developed and teach the Common Core with Technology graduate level course which shows teachers how to apply Common Core standards using educational technology. Students and their parents are being transitioned to the Common Core standards and I am the person enlightening educators to this process, so I fully understand the impact that it is having on students and can dissect the process into its most simple form so the student and parent can embrace the nuances of common core and why it is a better model for 21st century learning.

If you are struggling and frustrated, I can help. I'll use my vast understanding of educational technology to motivate and engage you or your child in learning. Together we will develop a learning plan that will increase success.
