Welcome to BigEdHouse! I'm Amy Mayer, the founder of BEH. I worked to have this site created because I noticed how hard it was for schools to find the temporary experts they needed to help with special projects or implementations AND how hard it was to BE found as an expert looking for those same schools. I hope you love it enough to use it! If you need anything, please use the contact information at the bottom of each page to get in touch. Now, about me as an educational expert . . . I am passionate about Google Apps for Education, Student Engagement, and Tier 1 Positive Behavior Support for teachers. I'd love to help you, your school, or your district with your implementation or special project. Use the buttons at right to get in touch with me! Thanks for visiting the site!
