Business and technology teacher Janelle Stansberry has spearheaded curriculum integration efforts at Cedar Bluffs High School in Cedar Bluffs, fostering collaboration and technology literacy in the process. In her entrepreneurial Wildcat Shop program, students create, advertise, manufacture and distribute products ranging from school apparel to business Web pages, showcasing their artistic talents as they learn real-world business practices. Ms. Stansberry helped develop the Platte Attack, in which the entire student body travels to the nearby Platte River following a week of multi-disciplinary instruction on the connection between the river and their daily lives. As the district's technology coordinator, Ms. Stansberry implemented a comprehensive technology plan that included salary advancement for staff members who acquired certification in using technology. She is a past recipient of a Christa McAuliffe Fellowship.
