By day, Jamie Willett is a technology integrationist, elementary teacher, math specialist, and STEM coach. But by night / sometime in the mid afternoon, she is an aspiring edtechpodcast host. Born in the wilds of Hong Kong (or somewhere not too far from downtown Central), educated in the tropics of Taiwan, she attended university in Minnesota, where, along with her degree, she learned how much she hated being cold. As soon as she graduated, she returned to Asia to teach elementary school for four years before becoming the elementary technology coach at Concordia International School in Shanghai. If she were really a super hero, her super power would be stopping time, Zac Morris style. For more information check: http://about.me/jamie.willett
