This week’s Shout Out goes to Brittany Lewis, an instructional technologist with HISD’s IT department who has been helping HISD high schools PowerUp.

Secondary Social Studies Teacher Development Specialist Elena Silva-Leal, who worked with Lewis at Madison High School, described Lewis as “amazing.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with her,” said Silva-Leal. “I can collaborate with her with ease, and she is incredibly supportive, flexible, and available to the campus. I am so excited that she will support Westbury next year.”

IT Project Manager Kevin Hodges concurs. “In my opinion,” he said, “the work that the IT Instructional Technologists and Teacher Development Specialists have done with the PowerUp teachers this year has been the primary reason for the early success of the program.”

    Although I haven’t worked with her with PowerUp, I have worked with her personally on incorporating more technology that has helped engage my 8th grade students. She is always supportive and ready to assist. Congrats Brittany!! You’re awesome.
