Joanne Piombino, the newest member of the CAS tech team, will serve as the Language Resource Center Technical Support Specialist (working primarily in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages). She grew up in Malvern and currently resides in Exton with her two daughters, one in college and the other finishing high school. Pursuing her technology degrees began later in life, first, with an Associate Degree in Educational Technology earned at Reading Area Community College, followed by a Bachelors’ Degree in Information Technology from Immaculata University. She is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology here at Saint Joseph’s University.
Joanne has worked in multiple roles supporting K-12 Education over the past decade, including Help Desk and Technology Integration. Of the nine years she worked at Great Valley School District, she spent the last four assisting teachers with the integration of technology in their classrooms. Joanne was part of a team that created and implemented professional development opportunities such as the “Great Valley Tech Camp,” which offered teachers various technology work sessions throughout a one week term, while earning graduate credits through Immaculata University.
Joanne is very excited about the new challenge of working in higher education and she is looking forward to meeting and developing collaborative professional relations with faculty, students, and staff of the College of Arts & Sciences. Although she is an avid football and baseball fan, she’s looking forward to “integrating” basketball into her repertoire as a Saint Joe’s Hawk!
