Hi! My name is Michelle Nyhuis, I am the Instructional Facilitator of Technology (IFT) at Cedar Lane Elementary School. I began my teaching career in Arizona teaching 6th grade. I then made the cross-country move to Virginia, where I started out teaching in the Gifted and Talented department in Fairfax County Public Schools. Once I had a family of my own, I wanted to be closer to my children so I made the move to Loudoun County Public Schools. I have been teaching at Cedar Lane for 12 years. It is a wonderful school with an incredible, joyous staff that loves working with students.
As the Instructional Facilitator of Technology, I team with teachers to support instruction by providing quality professional development for teachers, model effective strategies, and collaborate with teachers to develop engaging lessons. A focus of mine is integrating technology to increase student engagement and foster the growth of lifelong learners.
