2016-2017: My 25th year of teaching, all but three in middle school. I’ve taught in Humble ISD since 1993, and opened two middle schools, Humble Middle School and Timberwood Middle School. In that time I’ve developed a passion for using educational technology to engage students in my RELA classes. It’s been a fun ride to watch technology develop at hyper speeds, and watch kids adapt to it much like a fish adapts to water.
I teach: English
To ages: 13 to 14
To foster discussion and increase engagement and relevance.
To finally bury PowerPoint and make presentations more interactive and engaging for students.
I use it effectively with all levels of 8th grade ELA students to foster and facilitate discussions.
I highly recommend it to my colleagues.
