We are proud to introduce our 45th Sunday Spotlight, featuring Jeanne Ruth who is a Technology Coach and IB Chemistry teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jeanne loves using Edulastic as a tool for mastery learning and, as a technology coach, likes that she can compare data at a classroom, school and district level. You can find her snacking on Teddy Grahams while using Edulastic and hanging out with her family in her free time. We enjoyed getting to know Jeanne and hope you enjoy the interview too!

23 years working in education
“We all started with the free account. It was literally love at first sight. Science LOVED it… Biology can all give the same test, look at the data for each teacher and show growth over time. If one teacher is doing something the others are struggling with, it gives everyone the chance to learn and shine.”
