Position:
Socisl Studies Teacher
Needs:

My Philosophy:
My philosophy is that all students deserve the same level of education, regardless of their economic status. In our world that is moving toward fully digital education everyday, classrooms that don't currently have handheld technology are falling behind. Especially in social studies, where virtual tours are the only way many of the students will see historic landmarks and other important locations in their lifetimes. This much needed technology also allows for interactive digital assessments that provide real-time data that helps the teacher check for understanding.
