Class Information:
Room Number: Computer Lab
Position:
Learning Technology Specialist
My Philosophy:
My philosophy of teaching technology is that I am a facilitator who demonstrates many uses for computers and electronics. I assist students in using software in traditional and nontraditional ways in order to maximize their knowledge of each tool that they have access to. I seek for my students to feel comfortable with many technologies and to become excellent communicators through their use.
Personal Information:
Favorite Quotes:
I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious. - Albert Einstein
Why Do I Teach?:
I enjoy using various computer and electronic tools for communication purposes. I want to empower my students to communicate in many ways and with a wide array of technologies. Not only will it allow them to express their knowledge and ideas, but it will prepare them to be comfortable with any future technologies they may encounter. I want my students to be creative thinkers who are able to choose the tool most appropriate for their task.
