Google Trainer Application: Accepted!


I am so excited to announce that I have been officially accepted as a Google Certified Trainer! I was even going to write a speech for this moment, but there no words that will scream how excited I actually am! {I am just kidding about the speech part....maybe.}

How did I get started? How did I end up here?

I sat down a few months ago and generated a five year plan for myself. I posed the question:

Who do I want to become?


Since then, I generated a list of items I want to accomplish to become the person that I envision to be five years from now.

Among the list of accomplishments are:

  • developing my leadership skills
  • continue to educate myself and grow in the field of emerging media
  • obtain a series of certifications to valid my love for educational technology
The list above is of course only a snippet of what I desire. Since I sat down and envisioned myself 5 years from now, I went back to college and enrolled in the Educational Leadership Master's program with a concentration in emerging media and began to apply myself to working towards various certifications.....

...including Google. Although an avid user of Google, I took a year to really learn about the products inside and out. I also invested a great deal of time focusing on training educators about the many functionalities of GSuite. I took my time with the certifications and sat through the lessons {even though I thought I knew everything. It was amazing how much I did not know!}

I am an over-preparer though.

So if you have any questions about becoming a Google Certified Trainer, or if you have become a Google Certified Trainer and you have some insight to share, please leave them in the comments below.

Oh... and congrats Q4 graduating class of 2017!
