About Kelly Schuster-Paredes


I am a technology integration specialist but my true passion lies in learning from others. Throughout my career, I have always been passionate about learning and discovering new things. I have taught SCUBA, Science, IT/ICT, EV3 Robotics, Python code and various technologies of MYP Design. I learn most from coaching teachers in developing educational practices and curriculum, both with and without technology. I enjoy engaging in productive dialogue with colleagues on developing sound pedagogy, good teaching practices and effective protocols in the school system. These passions have led me into pursuing a path as an instructional and transformational coach and I continue to develop my skills daily.
