the Who, the What, the Why
Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
Welcome to our site. This site will document a year long journey for six educators who will be posting their failures, successes, and reflections as they implement methods aimed at streamlining delivery of content and gathering authentic assessments through tech integration. Check in often to read their thoughts and reflections. Hopefully you will be inspired to try something new in your classroom this year! The educators in this year’s cohort are as follows:
This site is intended to provide a platform for a group of middle school educators and one high school media center leader to reflect and share their successes and failures as they embark on a journey to better integrate technology into their daily teaching lives.
With 1 iPad Pro, an Apple pencil, and a 1 to 1 Macbook classroom these educators will collaborate over the course of one school year. These teachers have signed up to take the leap with me to get better, try new methods, and connect with their students on a deeper level as it supports teaching and learning.
We hope that you will check in often to be inspired and learn from these amazing teachers. Our group includes the following teachers from The Ensworth School in Nashville, TN.
- Trey House ~ Latin Teacher
- Amy Skillicorn ~ Latin Teacher
- Jim Mann ~ Math Teacher
- Ed Caudill ~ Math Teacher
- Bobby Mirzaie ~ Director of Curriculum and Instruction
- Courtney Bahr ~ High School Media Center Director
As their facilitator and organizer I can’t wait to see where they arrive at the end of this school year. To read more about me and what I do check out my iBook. It outlines my MakerSpace classroom and how I integrate technology into my life each and every day to connect with kids and provide a space for students to dig deeper into their passions.
