I am the Goochland Middle/High School Instructional Technology Coach. I am a former Spanish teacher. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator and a Google Certified Teacher.
Goochland is a small place and we all wear many hats, so my days are never boring.
Most of my days are spent meeting with teachers to work on lesson plans, or to provide one-on-one instruction on computer applications and online tools. Once teachers are familiar with tools, we work together to adapt lesson plans, or to develop new ideas for lesson plans that are creative and engaging. I am always happy when I’m invited to co-teach one of these lessons.
Over the past year I have worked very closely with the teachers in our 1:1 program. From finding apps to helping teachers adapt their pedagogy to the new environment, there is always something to do. We have embraced Google Apps for Education, Schoology, and a wide range of apps that allow for open-ended, creative projects.
