How are you involved in education?
I am currently a Middle School Spanish teacher in Hershey, PA. I also teach EdTech to teachers through PD and as a professor of online classes at Harrisburg University of Science & Tech. Besides being in the classroom, I’m involved in almost every committee to do with technology – policy, strategic plan, training, etc.
Have you ever attended an edcamp or unconference before?
Yes … I love EdCamp so much that I checked the EdCamp wiki to see the next EdCamp that was within driving distance. EdCamp MetroDC was the winner. I’ve been to EdCamps in Central PA and Philly.
What do you hope to get out of edcamp MetroDC?
The chance to be surrounded by positive and passionate educators who are excited that education is changing and want to be part of the transformation.
If you led a session at edcamp MetroDC, what would you present?
Writing your own digital textbook, Tech Clubs for students, BYOT, 1:1, TwitterChats, PD … currently undecided, but I have a few hours driving to figure it out.
