About PodcastPD

 Your Hosts

Stacey Lindes is the founder of #PodcastPD and is a Teacher Resource Specialist for Technology in Central New Jersey. In her current position, she works in a middle school.

A two-time graduate of The College of New Jersey, Stacey earned her MAT in Elementary Education. Since that time, Stacey has taught 2nd, 3rd, and, most recently, 1st grades and has experience in preschool and 4th and 5th grades.

Finally, Stacey is a dedicated, albeit SLOW runner who enjoys using the “alone time” to reflect on education, changes in technology, and the practical marriage of the two. Having completed multiple half marathons (including the Trenton and Disney Princess Half Marathons) and numerous 5Ks, Stacey has had many miles during which to have “running reflections” and “running thoughts”. This site is her effort to share those ideas with the world.
