Cynthia Spenner

Online Instructor

I currently teach EDT 889. Applying Tech in the Classroom. I love to teach this course because I believe in the power of technology to enhance the learning experiences for every student. I received my undergraduate degree from Illinois State University in Education. I went through the Colloquy program at Concordia River Forest and I received my Masters degree in Educational Design and Technology from Concordia Wisconsin.I have also presented at a number of conferences and workshops teaching teachers how to integrate technology in their own classrooms. Beside working with my CUW students, I also am a full time elementary school teacher serving in Southern Illinois. Personally, I am a wife and mother of 3 and I live on a working farm. I love to ride my bicycle down country roads and I am a voracious reader. I also love bad coffee way more than I should. My favorite coffee you ask? It’s from the gas station.
