Lissa Layman is a chemist turned teacher. In a surprise turn of events, she has actually enjoyed the daily challenge and adventure education brings. After 3 years teaching French in South Carolina, Lissa & her husband’s desire to experience different cultures led them to international teaching. Lissa is an Instructional Coach (Tech Integration) in Kuwait, a Critical Friends Group Coach, a Google for Education Certified Trainer, COETAIL graduate and has an M.Ed. in School Technology Leadership. During her time in education she has discovered a passion for inquiry-based education, global collaboration and teaching teachers. Professionally, she spends her time collaborating with colleagues to develop an instructional coaching culture, planning for and meaningfully implementing learning with technology, and seeking out her next learning opportunity. Lissa occasionally blogs at Te(a)ch French.
Diana is an international educator with over 20 years experience as a teacher, mentor and coach in the United States, Japan, China and Qatar. Although her main professional focus is facilitating the learning and growth of students and educators, Diana is a self-professed lifelong learner and appreciates any opportunity to enhance her own understanding and experience.

Her blog at Digital Journeys documents her learning through the COETAIL course and she continues to cultivate her presence on Twitter @dianabeabout. Diana facilitates professional learning sessions on a variety of topics including assessment, digital portfolios, digital storytelling, blogs, reflection, and coaching.

In February 2017, I joined Eduro Learning as their first Executive Assistant. I bring over 6 years of experience working for two different Seattle based Corporations both as an Executive Assistant and an Office Manager. As a mom of 2 young children, entering the world of education and technology I find inspiration in everything Eduro Learning is doing. Eduro is connecting teachers, parents and children in the ever changing digital world. I am proud to be a part of Eduro, the passion and love each member of the team exemplifies in their work is truly inspiring. I am here to help COETAILers with payments, credits and making sure you have a great COETAIL experience.
