Hello, I’m Lisa and I am a student at the University of Northern Iowa. I am a secondary math education major. I have 2 minors in coaching and educational technology. I am interested to see what The Flat Classroom Project is really all about. I have only been a technology minor for a year or so, so I am still a little new with things. But I am excited to work with all of the students to help with the learning process.
