PROUDEST MOMENT OF YOUR EDUCATION CAREER:
I have proud moments every time that I see students learning, enjoying their experiences, and being excited to share their work. Finishing my Master’s degree in Instructional Technology this past May was an exciting moment. It was great to have learned so much throughout the program so that I could provide more opportunities for my students. I loved being in the role of student. These experiences help me to keep being reflective and become a better educator.
WHY DID YOU WANT TO BECOME A BUNCEE AMBASSADOR?
I want to share the many possibilities for using Buncee in the classroom and for any purpose. I love that it provides so many ways for students, teachers and anyone to be creative and find something unique to add into their presentations. I enjoy telling others about the tools that can empower students in their learning and promote student choice and voice.
