Darcy Bakkegard is an Educational Change Consultant and co-Founder of The Educators' Lab. After a decade teaching English and Theatre, she got tired of traditional sit-n-get PD and now creates the type of PD she always wanted, focusing on driving innovation, supporting implementation, reconnecting educators with their purpose, and sparking JOY. Additional education passions include interactive strategies for the classroom, meaningful tech integration, and building relationships with students. Bakkegard is an ISTE Certified Educator, an experienced international presenter, and empowerer of teachers. She co-wrote The Startup Teacher Playbook to help teachers rekindle their spark for teaching and make PD meaningful.
