Incorporating technology into her classroom and helping other teachers be successful doing so, is Kathryn's passion! Over the past 10 years, she's had the opportunity to teach each grade K-4, giving her the knowledge and experience to be able to support all grade level teachers with utilizing technology in their classrooms.
Kathryn believes in making learning fun and creating new ways to engage students. She's focused on designing and implementing meaningful learning activities that effectively integrate technology into the elementary classroom.
Why a Google Teacher?
Over the last 5 years, Kathryn saw the rise of schools acquiring Google Accounts for their students and teachers, but without the training and support for teachers to use them effectively. After hearing from teachers across the U.S, she realized there was a need for step-by-step Google training to create meaningful activities that would enhance their current instruction, not add one more subject to teach.
As a Level 2 Google Educator and holding a masters in Educational Technology, Kathryn loves Google Apps because of their ability to help students construct meaning, collaborate with peers, connect and share with a wider audience, and keep students engaged in learning.
