I am a fifth grade teacher in the Pennridge School District. I've spent the last 8 years designing a classroom that focuses on improving the student experience. I want my students to come to school inspired, passionate, and reach extremely high-levels of work ethic.
Skills and experience
My classroom and professional development experience are all focused on how pedagogy, cutlure, and learning spaces blend together to create the best student-centered learning experience possible. The skills and experience below highlight specific tools. The tools are only a small piece of the puzzle. My classroom and PD never focuses solely on the tool, but how it impacts learning.
Below are my skills and experience levels with different different 21st century tools. You'll see each particular skill and strategy displays my experience and skill level with classroom integration as well as professional development experience.
I have integrated G-Suite into my classroom across all content areas for the past four years building systems to manage a paperless classroom without being 1:1.
I have facilitated professional development on G-Suite integration for K-12 teachers for three years. Most recently, I wrote the graduate course track for PD Campus focused on G-Suite integration, including Introduction to G-Suite and Integrating G-Suite into Learning.
I have integrated iOS projects into my classroom environment focusing on creativity. Some highlights include creating documentaries for biomes and short reading lessons on theme.
I have facilitated professional development on iOS integration for K-12 teachers for three years. Most recently, I wrote the graduate course Media Productions with iPads.
