Trent Saracini serves as the Instructional Technology Specialist at the Arkansas Public School Resource Center and has done so for 3 years. Before coming to APSRC, Trent served one year as Program Advisor in the Office of Educator Effectiveness at the Arkansas Department of Education as data and technology support. Prior to ADE, he was an EAST Facilitator at Harrisburg Middle School School as well as Valley View High School.
