We’re excited to share our MIDWEST SPOTLIGHT EDUCATOR bios on The Connected Classroom! These K-12 educators demonstrate motivation, engagement, transformation and connection while using technology to improve teaching and learning. They will share their best practices at the MIDWEST EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY COMMUNITY CONFERENCE in February. This year, we have educators from across the state of Missouri presenting. The METC 2016 MIDWEST SPOTLIGHT EDUCATORS were selected by the METC Conference committee.

Over the past 12 years Manuel Herrera has served learners through several roles in education. From the beginning of his career as a middle school Special Education teacher, Manuel has advocated that students be given the opportunity to leverage technology as a way to create, connect and share their learning. He believes that when students are driven by their own passions and curiosity, they have the opportunity to create their learning and teach others. Currently, Manuel is the Coordinator of 1:1 Programming for the Affton School District, located in south St. Louis. He is also a member of the leadership team for the educational non-profit ConnectEd Learning. Manuel has presented at conferences in Illinois, Missouri and Texas, including SXSWEdu, METC, EdCamp, ActivEducator and RCET-SW. Manuel holds his M.Ed Administration.
