How to Work with Lindy
For Schools and Teachers
Are you looking for teacher training to navigate big change in
I am a how-to trainer. I know how to connect with teachers and target their learning needs via hands-on training. When it comes to teacher professional development, one size does not fit all, so training is customized to your unique needs and learning goals.
I have led over 600 hands-on trainings for over 16,000 educators in 38 states and seven countries via face-to-face, blended, and virtual formats. I have worked with public, private, and charter schools. I am also trained in the Jim Knight instructional coaching model and am a Google Certified Coach Mentor. I can provide one-on-one support and mentoring to assist with technology integration.

“Lindy is amazing! Lindy has been one of our Collaborators for many years now and has proven herself to be one of our most indispensable trainers. Lindy can learn and teach anything . . . ANYTHING. She is detailed, organized and always thinks bigger than the challenge.”
- Alex Inman, Educational Collaborators
“We used the e-textile information from Lindy Hockenbary's presentation last summer and sewed LED sequins and battery packs into our monsters so their eyes, teeth etc. would light up. So awesome! THEN the 7th graders wrote poems, recorded them on Flipgrid and downloaded QR codes that were then attached to the monster. The kids were SO excited (high school & elementary). It was such a fun STEAM project. Thanks for some great training Lindy Hockenbary!”
- Kim Knoche, Family and Consumer Sciences, Forsyth High School, Montana
Lindy was amazing. She listened and understood what I wanted to accomplish with VR in my classroom and she tailored our session to my needs. She clearly researched and thought about the best practices and applications for the devices and my needs. I feel so much more confident moving forward. I'm incredibly grateful to her!
- Candace Plaisance, AP History, Houston High School, Germantown Municipal School District
For Event Organizers
Are you looking for a keynote or featured speaker for your event?
Educators want to hear from fellow educators. Not only am I an educator of more than 15 years, but I am also an engaging presenter with loads of public speaking experience.
I have been a featured speaker at over 50 conferences and 60 events. I would love to speak at your event. Not only can I motivate and inspire, but I also bring my training experience to provide participants with loads of tips, strategies, and resources.
“Thank you. This is a great way to start our school year and be excited about what we teach and how we teach. Lindy is such a great teacher.”
- Teacher, Sweet Grass County High School, Montana

For Technology Companies
Do you want a product that sells itself because it solves the needs and challenges of educators?
Do you want to provide effective teacher training to ensure product retention?
I have worked with over 50 technology companies and educational organizations to provide training solutions and consultation as a K–12 subject matter expert (SME).
If you are developing a technology solution for the education market, you must seek the advice of educators. I know the educational technology market in and out. I can act as your SME for product design. I can tell you what is missing and what educators need.

“I've had the pleasure of collaborating with Lindy for the past 5 years now, and she never fails to impress. She is extremely knowledgeable in the ed tech space and continuously explores new ways to do things differently, and more efficiently. With educator and student interests always at the forefront, Lindy consistently explores technology and processes from their viewpoint. Her extremely well thought out trainings are highly engaging and she has a way of making some of the more complex topics easy to understand. Every district, school or educational institute she trains for has nothing less than outstanding things to say about her courses. Without a doubt, any organization would greatly benefit from her educational technology knowledge and consulting.”
- Kristi Schuda, Partner Marketing & Project Manager - Education K-12 (CDW) at Microsoft
“Lindy was a huge help in growing our HP immersive education technologies like Sprout Pro. She developed curriculum for cutting-edge technologies like 3D scan, digital inking, and augmented reality. She trained educators and students to succeed with STEM tech at in-person trainings of 30+, and also lead out at conferences in booths and event presentations. She is smart, accountable, and passionate about education. I highly recommend her for any education consulting, training, and personalized training needs!”

"Lindy is a joy to work with. We worked together at Hāpara where Lindy not just managed, but also instructionally designed training programs to meet the needs of both the company, the educators, and students using Hapara tools . Her experience of working with thousands of educators contributed greatly to these programs, along with understanding what the company needed out of this implementation. Lindy is more than a trainer. I highly recommend Lindy to other companies that are looking for authentic application of their solutions in classrooms and product usability feedback."
