About me

My name is Laura Wright and I live in Australia. I became a wife 7 years ago when God brought Samuel and I together, then a few years later I became a mother when He gave us our darling little Joshua, and then again last year with the arrival of Caleb.

It is my professional goal to work as a technology integration specialist. Working as a support for classroom teachers as they take the plunge of applying computer technology to their instructional methods makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! Its that exciting! I may not be in the classroom just yet but I am tyring to use this time at home to learn as much as I can, through books, online conferences and from the amazing educators in my Twitter PLN.
