I am a resource teacher coordinator in the Office of Instructional Technology for the Newark Public Schools. I support and serve technology coordinators as we work together with the educational community to integrate technology across the curriculum. I entered the district as an alternate route teacher with a “past life”. I earned an undergraduate degree in Marketing and a Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision. This will be my second Masters degree.
I am always hungry to learn more and share knowledge with other educational technologists and valued stakeholders within my district. My primary interest in the EDIM course is to really learn what new digital media resources are available for use in the classroom. This is my second EDIM course and I am actually excited because I am working on this educational journey with colleagues I find near and dear. We collectively will turnkey our knowledge and stimulate excitement for this program to our other colleagues. I simply want to grow educationally and help others to grow as well.
