If you want an outstanding presenter that has successfully bridged the people and techie side, then you absolutely need to bring Carol Mortensen to your school. Carol brings a world of knowledge about all things computer wrapped in a teacher friendly package.

Wow! What a workshop! We were so privileged to have you present for us, and not only once, but twice! With such a wealth of knowledge and experience that you possess you always know how to captivate your audience in smooth transitions at just the right pace for novice techies through advanced levels. The teachers and I certainly appreciated your organizational style of your website training and the great examples and tips for classroom technology management. Your workshop was perfect for our DATE grant needs and district initiatives. You laid a solid foundation for teachers to envision the how, why, what, when, and where of creating and maintaining classroom websites and other tools. The teachers are so excited now to go back and renew their websites and/or create one utilizing the various tools and examples you provided. Thank you again and I hope that we get another opportunity to work with each other. You are awesome!

Carol is a sparkling gem that always comes through. She not only has the skills necessary to accomplish any technical project but she also has the people skills to make you feel right at home with whatever complex task she is explaining. Carol is a true teacher at heart… giving her all for her students and taking instructional moments whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Carol Mortensen is an excellent trainer. She has a “bag of tricks” for the novice learner as well as the experienced learner. When I have attended her technology trainings, I have always left with information that I could use or implement the very next day. Carol’s trainings focus on practical and useful applications. Above all, she ensures her trainings are fun, useful, and hands-on.

Carolynn presented at my school, Cedar Grove Elementary, many times. She did a great job! She knew what she was talking about. She was very helpful and patient in answering questions. She was also very entertaining with her sense of humor. She kept the attention of the audience. I enjoyed her presentations very much!

~Mary E Gholson Spec. Rafael Hernando III Middle School El Paso, Texas
I love to attend Carol Mortensen presentations. She makes technology so very “teacher friendly”. She is a powerhouse of computer knowledge and relays this information in a non-threatening way. If you want the best, you need Carol for your technology presentations.
Carol is passionate about what she does and communicates that to her audience whether it be teachers or administrators. Whenever I had the chance to hear her present, I went. Every time I learned something new. A web page is a terrible thing to waste and she leads you safely to practice what she teaches. Her home pages are resources for students and parents. Her suggested resources are tools to help teachers integrate technology in the classroom. Her presentations are versatile and worth the time spent. I recommend her without reservation.
