About our Guests

Paul Naser

I am an East Stroudsburg University graduate, with a degree in Elementary Education and Mathematics.  I was a classroom teacher for 12 years.  I taught middle school math for 8, and elementary 5th grade for 4. 

During my time as a classroom teacher I also was an assistant varsity football coach for 12 years, and an assistance varsity basketball coach.  I was also the East Stroudsburg University Women’s Rugby Coach for 8 years.

I have a passion for instructional technology, and have been able to work with amazing teachers in my three years at Promethean as an Education Consultant.  I have recently been promoted to the Head of Project Professional Development, East Region.

I currently reside in Easton, PA with my amazing wife Jeanann and our two dogs Cali and Eddie.

Hailey Philpotts

I am the proud mom of two amazing daughters: Madison, 6 years and Makenzie 4, years old. I have been teaching for 15 years and was chosen by my peers as Teacher of the Year for the 2019-2020 school year. I have a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and am currently teaching Prekindergarten. I was chosen to be a part of a Dade County Public Schools Promethean Pilot program in 2016 and then joined the Promethean PEP Squad in 2018. In 2018, I was awarded a 70” moveable ActivPanel which allows the smallest of learners to reach and interact with the board with ease. Students are more engaged and excited to use the ActivPanel interactively and use it as a learning center. I joined Promethean at ISTE and FETC to demonstrate how I use Promethean in the classroom to make learning not just an academic experience but an amazing experience.
