Maria Galanis

Chicago, IL
Hi! I'm Maria, an educator living in Chicago. My journey in EdTech began in 2001 as a middle school Tech Coordinator, which evolved into Tech Coach, and then iCoach. Currently, I'm the K-8 Innovation Curriculum Specialist in my school district helping introduce, integrate, and support innovative learning practices. I received a M.Ed in Curriculum & Technology because I love what tech brings to learning, connecting people, and the world. When I think of my ideal focus in education, I want it to FOSTER, ELEVATE, & INSPIRE CURIOSITY & WONDER. At the same time ENJOY it all. I focus on the positive & believe that everyone has the ability in them to be great in their own way.

I'm married to one of the nicest guys in the world, Konstantinos Arfanakis, and we have two little ones, Gia and Leo.
