As Mercaz Academy in Plainview, the full-time Director of Technology, Lynda Last (at right assisting Grade 5 teacher Katherine Papaccioli), ensures that every teacher is well-equipped to use the best technological solutions.
The Mercaz learning community is blessed with plenty of the latest educational technology to make learning better, faster and smarter.
“It’s wonderful to have so many ed tech resources, but if I had to figure all of them out on my own, I’d be lost,” said Morah Leah Levy, fourth grade religious studies teacher.
Mrs. Last is the school’s primary resource for help with anything tech-related. She also serves as liaison with Mercaz Academy’s outside consultants to keep hardware at Mercaz functioning smoothly, while often solving minor problems herself.
