A public school French teacher since 2012, I have long been interested in infusing the classroom with technology. In fact, it was how I intially secured the position. Having been a stay-at-home mom and foster parent for years, I began my foray into education by investigating tech tools: learning Smart notebook, researching electronic games, and developing electronic flashcard sets for the students that I tutored in homes and at South Aiken High School.
Still teaching in the high school where I was intially hired, I was accepted into the Full Circle Technology program through the Instrucional Technology Department of Aiken County Public Schools. In this group, the district provided invaluable professional development on transforming the classroom through the use of technology. My interest in using technolgy has only grown. My students now have unlimited potential in learning the content, exploring the world, and demonstrating their mastery. We have only scratched the surface of what is possible. The Educational Technology Master's program has equipped me with a shovel, digging into a wealth of knowledge!
