Hey all, it has been an absolute pleasure working with y’all these past few months. Thanks for the warm welcome and for the support I’ve received from everyone at Manor ISD. Now that I have my feet (sort of) planted, I figured it was about time I did a bit more sharing. After all, if we want our students to reflect and share then I better get on it, right? So expect to see me snapping shots and posting write-ups on all the innovative learning that is occurring in your classrooms! And eventually (fingers crossed) getting students to do their own sharing! I can’t wait. Still before I jump right in, here’s a bit about me and what I’m all about:
I’ve had experience teaching multiple content areas from kindergarten to early college mostly in bilingual classroom or as a Spanish teacher. I believe in hands-on, inquiry based learning while using tech to amplify instructional practices..but I feel I should also say, it’s not always about the tech! For me, innovative teaching and learning means rethinking current practices overall and learning spaces as well! On the side (because I love what I do), I serve on the SXSWedu advisory board, consult with schools as a Google Certified Teacher, and help to organize both EdTech & EdCamp Austin. I work on each of these with the greater of goal of pushing the Austin community from pockets of innovation to an entire community of innovators that connect with one another.
Well, there you have it! I look forward to learning from and getting to know each of you as the year rolls along.
