Allison Yeager

Allison spent the first 10 years of her career as an elementary educator in a large district in DFW. She taught 1st-3rd graders through the years, in both regular and dual language programs. As a teacher, she loved finding ways to integrate technology to engage and create new learning experiences for her students. She then spent 3 years serving as an EdTech specialist for the same school district where she was able to share her passion for EdTech with teachers and administrators. Allison’s most recent experience was in the corporate world where she was able to hone her training and instructional design skills for an auto-finance company. Her true passion for education and educators brought her to friEd Technology where she joins the friEdOnline team as a Learning Experience Specialist.
FriEdOnline courses are easy to follow and are very interesting. I have learned alot taking these courses.
I am so thankful I found friEdOnline courses because I hate going to LIVE PD sessions
I love the FriEd online courses. I can work at my own pace and each section gives you practice on presented skills.
I have taken several of the courses that are offered and have learned so many great strategies! I have already spread the word to several of my colleagues!
I love taking these courses. I can pause them when I need to, go back over information if I missed something, and overall they are well put together. This is superior to going to a training off-site where it feels like you're drinking from a fire hose and can't remember anything when you leave.
Yall have been teachers and know what teachers are needing and looking for in resources. Can not wait for the next opportunity to learn more!!!
