Classroom Teacher

I taught third grade for 3 years in Fairfax County, Virginia. I then moved to Maryland where I was a long-term sub in 5th grade reading and Gifted and Talented resource teacher in Harford County for half the year then began teaching 5th grade Math/Science in Prince George's County. I taught 3rd grade Reading/Writing/Social Studies for 2 years before my current position back in 5th with a self-contained classroom.

In my 3rd grade classroom I was 1:1 with chromebooks. In my current classroom I have about 20 chromebooks (and 25 students).

It was my move to Prince George's County that introduced me to educational technology. I used Google Apps for Education for the first time, as well as, a chromebook and fell in love with both. Since then I have continued to attend different workshops to learn more ways to integrate technology into the classroom.
