I am a maker at heart, and have recently joined the PowerApps Customer Advisory Team as a Program Manager. I am passionate about helping customers achieve more by adopting and managing the Power Platform at an enterprise scale level.
Lauren Taylor, an assistant principal at Manitou Park Elementary school in Tacoma, Wash., has created two apps to improve the school’s productivity and maximize student collaboration. One is an app to help target students’ reading strengths and needs, and then meet to confer with them about their reading. The other is an app on a program called Check-in/Check-out, which helps with students’ social emotional needs. “I had no prior programming experience,” she said. “PowerApps was pretty straightforward from its ability to create an app directly from a SharePoint list. I’ve learned so much more through trial and error, as well as from the Power Platform community, so I’ve been able to make my apps better.”
