■ Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of articles on new certificated staff at Chase County Schools.

    Lori Klooz has joined the staff at Chase County Schools (CCS) overseeing technology integration.
    After graduating and leaving her hometown of Hordville, Klooz attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK), receiving a Bachelors degree in Education in 1994 with endorsements in secondary mathematics and English.
    She began her teaching career in 1995, adding volleyball and track coaching to her résumé over the next decade.
    Because of her passion for technology, in 2006 she was approached to add technology instruction to her résumé.
    In 2011, Klooz earned a Masters degree in Education with an endorsement in instructional technology/information technology.
    By 2013, she achieved the status of Technology Integration Specialist and taught technology exclusively to students and staff members in public school systems and at the college level.
    Her responsibilities at CCS will be providing technological support for teachers, staff members and students.
    “I won’t be teaching the subject, but I will be on hand to support teachers as they integrate technology into their classrooms,” said Klooz.
    She said she will be leading professional development sessions for teachers and be available as a support person within the classroom, if needed, to help introduce any new technology to students.
