Why do you choose to be a connected educator? 

As an art teacher, I believe it’s important to showcase my students art so not only they can review it, but also share it with their families. As a leadership teacher, I’m constantly getting new ideas from all over the internet. I also do that with art as well. Being connected to other teachers who teach the same subjects is very important to me. I learn more from my peers than just about any place else.

Implementing iPads at our high school means our teachers need the resources to best utilize the technology tools at our fingertips. Part of my job is to connect our teachers to the resources (often other teachers) to elevate our teaching and learning process to the highest level.
