2017 CUE Board of Directors Election - Myra Deister

Myra DeisterMyra Deister

Affiliate Nominated (OCCUE)
Fullerton Joint Union High School District
Fullerton, CA



I have been a CUE member for more than 20 years and I have a deep desire to give back to CUE a portion of what I have gained as an attendee at CUE conferences, workshops, trainings and as a member of the OCCUE Board. CUE has been a driving force for me to incorporate more educational technology into my classroom and I want to help other teachers do that.

As an OCCUE Board member I have assisted with planning and working behind the scenes at the OCCUE Tech Fest as well as presenting at the event. I have also taken over the job of communications to keep our members informed of events and current trends in educational technology. Additionally, I have assisted with selecting grant recipients and have organized Coffee CUES. My desire is for OCCUE to continue to be a successful affiliate, and I am willing to continue working to make that happen.

As a classroom teacher and math tech coach, I can bring to the board the perspective of someone working with students on a daily basis to incorporate technology to improve student learning. As a member of the site and district tech teams, I can bring the perspective of a teacher leader who has worked to move my site to a 1:1 and train teachers to work in that environment.

I want to use my experience to continue to help CUE have the powerful impact it has for educators.
