Melissa Oliver is a technology coordinator in northern California. She is a fierce advocate for access for students with disabilities. In our sit down (click here for that), Melissa explains how her own story led her to become so invested in using technology in order to create more inclusive environments. She began her career as a classroom teacher with Teach For America in Boston and eventually became a special education teacher after receiving her own medical diagnosis. Now that she is district technology coordinator, she is sure to maintain membership in organizations like CUE (learn more about it here http://www.cue.org/) and she attends EdCamps looking to connect with other education professionals and spread the word about the ease of making learning more inclusive.
