What do you love most about technology in the classroom? What do you love most about teaching?

I love using technology in the classroom because it helps me give feedback to my students almost immediately. I love teaching because I get to watch young people learn and grow

What is your favorite tech tool and/or device?

This year, my IPad. I try to incorporate a new tech tool every year.

How has technology impacted you and your students?

Technology allows me to help students visualize math concepts. I can show students visual models digitally instead of my hand scratched, crooked drawings. I can also provide information and help for students when they are not in the classroom.
