Leah Heerema

As a Digital Learning Specialist, I support curricular areas (Mathematics, Career and Technical Ed, AVID) with accessing online textbooks, digital resources, and integrating technology into the curriculum. I am passionate about collaborating with teachers, staff, administrators, and curriculum coordinators to explore meaningful, effective ways to integrate technology for deeper learning. 

My career in Education started in 2005 in Plano ISD! I taught at Shepton HS ('05-'06, Desktop Publishing & Keyboarding, FBLA), Vines HS ('06-'11, Business Computer Information Systems, Keyboarding, Communication Applications, Debate, & Yearbook, NHS), and Plano West SHS ('11-'12, Sports & Entertainment Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Marketing Dynamics, Coop, and DECA). I also taught eSchool Business Information Management and was a curriculum writer for BCIS, eSchool BIM, and Virtual Business. I made the move to administration in 2013. 

Fun Facts: I'm married to PISD's Desktop Applications Engineer, Jason Heerema. We have a sweet son that is the light of our life.
