The value of technology didn't dawn on me until I became a classroom teacher. I began to participate in Technology Learning Month in our District. Each year, I learned more effective ways to reach my students. They loved using technology in the classroom.
Most people say I'm a very patient teacher. My patience in working with tech newbies comes from personal experience. That scared feeling turns into excitement when you just let go to click and learn. I spent 6 years in the classroom teaching 4th Grade and 1/2 a year as a technology integration teacher for K-5. I've been an Instructional Technology Specialist with EPISD since 2009.
