Christy Cate (@ChristyCate)
Christy grew up in a family of educators and vowed that education would NOT be her destiny. God, however, had other plans for her and after first starting out in the business world, she found herself finally at home in a classroom in 1997. Her business background gave her an edge in technology use when tech tools hit the schools. She eventually became an instructional technology specialist and currently serves as a Digital Innovation Consultant for 42 rural school districts in West Texas.
