Meet Christina

Hi, I’m Christina Whitmire!  Teaching is my passion and I continue to learn everyday!  I have almost 25 years of experience teaching almost every grade level, in both traditional and charter, online school settings.  Currently, I’m proud to serve as the District Ed Tech ToSA in the Oakley Union Elementary School District.  There’s so much more to “Going Google” than just receiving devices. Working together with staff and students to explore how to use the tools and, even more importantly, how to use them to transform learning is critical!  

For those outside of OUESD, I’m also available for consultations, beginning and/or advanced trainings,  boot camps, deployment projects, or even just a Google chat!  From small groups to large groups, I’d love to work with you!
