Manuel moved to Colorado in January of 2011. He grew up in a town located in the panhandle of West Texas called Levelland. Manuel is a first generation college graduate thanks to “Upward Bound,” a college prep program he completed in high school.

Manuel has known his wife since the 2nd grade, although they didn’t date until both obtained their undergraduate degrees; her from Texas A&M, Manuel from Texas Tech. Needless to say, their house rule is that they do not watch football together when those two college teams play. Manuel is a certified Tennis Pro through USPTA and he coaches tennis as well.

Manuel’s areas of educational expertise include: Interactive Whiteboards (he’s a certified trainer in SMART, Promethean, and Mimio), Mobile Technologies, Learning Management Systems (Schoology, Edmodo, and Moodle), Technology Planning, and Professional Development. Prior to moving to Colorado, Manuel worked at the Oklahoma State Department of Education where he provided professional development training to 3,000 teachers and administrators annually. Manuel also approved over 500 district technology plans each year for E-rate funding eligibility.

Manuel joined the InnEdCO Board in November 2012 and 2011 was his first Conference experience. He has participated in the summer conference as a presenter and has been a chairperson for both Leadership and Presentations . This summer, Manuel is the Communications/PR chairperson for the 2015 InnEdCO conference.

Since arriving in Colorado in 1998, Kim and her family have enjoyed skiing, hiking, and camping in the course of exploring surrounding areas. As an avid reader, she balances professional favorites: Yong Zhao’s Catching Up or Leading the Way and World Class Learning with her book club reading. She loves to travel and experience the people, cultures, and foods of the locality.

Kim is passionate about melding curriculum and instruction, pedagogy and technology. She works closely with districts to ensure that technology supports highly effective, digital age teaching and learning.

Kim attended conferences and was a frequent presenter long before joining the InnEdCO Board of Directors. She applied what she learned and began networking with colleagues across the state and beyond. Kim joined the Board in 2009 and was immediately swept up in planning InnEdCO’s partnership with ISTE’s 2010 Conference. She then served as presentation chairperson and the Leadership Academy chairperson. InnEdCO is the affiliate organization for International Society for Technology in Educational (ISTE), and through this relationship we have a more global perspective for the work we do.
