Mandy Froehlich is a former educator, technology integrator, and Director of Innovation and Technology turned technology and mental health consultant. Her passion lies in reinvigorating and re-engaging teachers back into their profession as well as what’s needed to support teachers in their pursuit of innovative and divergent thinking and teaching. Her work in mental health and how it impacts disengagement and innovative thinking and subsequently technology use is widely known in the education community. She consults internationally with school districts and post-secondary institutions in the effective use of technology to support great teaching, technology department leadership and coaching, 1:1 rollouts and learning management system deployment, and the impact of mental health on innovation. She also consults with edtech companies on creating user-friendly and pedagogically sound technology for schools. As a way to impact an upcoming generation of leaders, Froehlich is an adjunct for an organizational technology class for graduate students looking to become administrators. Her first book, The Fire Within: Lessons from defeat that have ignited a passion for learning, discusses mental health awareness for teachers. Her second book, Divergent EDU: Challenging assumptions and limitations to create a culture of innovation, is based on an organizational structure she developed to support teachers in innovative and divergent thinking. Her third book, based on educator engagement and mental health, is titled Reignite the Flames: Finding our passion and purpose for learning among the embers which has a recently released companion guide/workbook titled The Educator’s Matchbook: A weekly guide to reigniting your love of teaching, building resilience, and fighting burnout and disengagement.
