Dr. Samantha (Sam) Fecich is an Assistant Professor and Instructional Technologist at Grove City College in Grove City, PA. At Grove City College, she teaches courses related to educational technology and special education. In her Technology of Instruction course, preservice teachers take a deep dive into the Danielson Framework for Teaching and infuse technology into each domain. Students work closely with a virtual cooperating teacher (a teacher from around the world in their major area) to create technology tools for use in their classroom – giving meaning to their work. By the end of the course, students leave with a digital portfolio and professional digital presence through Twitter. Dr. Sam’s passion in life is teaching preservice teachers and professionals about special education and educational technology. She takes great pride in leading our next cohort of special education teachers to learn, grow, and thrive in their future careers.

On a more personal note, Dr. Sam Fecich enjoys spending her time with family and friends at the lake. Her husband, Josh, is a great water skier and her daughter, Summer, enjoys being on the boat and swimming. Sam also makes a mean chocolate truffle.
