Mandy Froehlich is an educator, former 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. She also works as the chief operations officer for EduMatch Publishing, an education-based publishing company that “elevates the authentic voices of educators using evidence- informed practices to be the catalyst for change in education” through which her own four books are published. Even though her roots are in educational technology, her passion has always been in educator mental health. Therefore, her research will focus on creating a sustainable program to be implemented at institutions in regards to educator mental health and how we can best support education professionals to avoid mental health issues like burnout and demoralization.
