Terice T. Schneider and Vicki Ventura began EnvisionEd Consulting, LLC after working for over a decade as Instructional Technology Coordinators in Belton ISD. They each spent 15 years in the classroom before moving into Instructional Technology, earning them a deep understanding of both the classroom, as well as the administration. They began consulting soon after they retired because they are passionate about helping school systems empower teachers to use every means possible, including technology, to engage students in their own learning.
Adrienne Ahr, Jayde Young and Elliot Ahr have joined the team with their own skill sets to allow EnvisionEd Consulting to offer even more, including:
-Staff development, one-to-one, or small group consulting for working with special populations using technology, including students on the autism spectrum
-Classroom coaching/teacher counseling for teachers struggling with changing classroom expectations
-Keynote and conference session presentations and guest lectures
Terice T. Schneider has lived in Texas all of her life, and she is grateful to have her wanderlust satisfied with travelling. She loves water. Oceans, lakes, rivers, and swimming pools provide her joy and respite, and she counts her transAtlantic cruise with husband Karl in 2010 as a top ten experience. Her two wonderful, grown children and their families and friends continue to bless her along with Karl’s daughter and her family. Terice’s three grandsons plus Karl’s two granddaughters fill her heart and her non-work days with grand escapades. She reads, tweets, writes (catch her blog), and is a self-proclaimed Pinterest addict. Family and friends report that she never met a stranger and finds it thrilling to meet and support so many brilliant educators through EnvisionEd Consulting.
