I am a content specialist for Model Schools at Ulster BOCES. I help teachers find ways to incorporate technology into their classrooms to increase interest, strengthen 21st century skills and make learning fun!
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
I believe the ideal classroom allows a lot of freedom of choice for students to present their learning, creativity and interests. They are inquisitive and solve problems instead of waiting for the answer and regurgitating it. My role, as a teacher, is more of a mentor or coach fostering their learning and guiding them down the path to discovery and understanding.
