I am Charlene Chausis. I work at the “award-winning” Adlai E. Stevenson High School, in Lincolnshire, IL as the Technology Training and Integration Manager. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator (class of 2003), an ISTE Outstanding Leader (2007), a STAR Discovery Educator and a Google Certified Teacher.

I think of myself as a "connector." I am always working to connect people with ideas and tools in support of education. I believe in promoting ubiquitous technology in education - "it's not about the technology," it's about finding ways to harness the power of technology to help students learn, and be productive citizens in an ever-changing global society.

I “Twitter,” “Flickr” “Ustream” and “Skype” as cchausis, and ichat as cchausis125. You’ll find me online more than offline. I am the newsletter editor for the Northern Illinois Computing Educators (, and serve on the ICE Conference ( committee as the volunteer co-chair.
