I work for North Texas Adult Education (NTAEL) that is a department of Denton ISD. I provide any and all technical support for my program by introducing new programs and software as well as new technology. I also have helped shape our online presence by restructuring our website and rebranding our program with a new logo, flyers and marketing. I have also pushed our program to new heights by implementing online remote learning to our program giving our instructors and students a new way to engage in their teachings and learnings. I feel that my ambition to push forward with innovated ideas will greatly benefit TALAE as well as help me grow as an AEL provider. Thank you for this opportunity.
