About Me: Erik Palmer is an educational consultant from Denver, Colorado. Prior to becoming a consultant, he had a career in business (national sales leader for a prominent commodity brokerage firm and a floor trader on a Chicago commodity exchange), and a career in the classroom (21 years in the Cherry Creek School District as a teacher of English, math, science, and civics). As a consultant, he works with teachers showing practical ways to move from being overwhelmed by technology to using technology in their classrooms to enhance instruction and engage students. He is a frequent presenter at national, regional, and state conferences, and he has given keynotes and led in-service trainings for districts across the US and Mexico. Palmer is the author of several articles and the author of Well-Spoken: Teaching Speaking to All Students (Stenhouse Publishers, 2011) and Digitally Speaking: How to Improve Student Presentations with Technology (Stenhouse Publishers, 2012).
