Opportunities to collaborate
I previously taught seventh grade math for nine years here at Great Neck. The first year that the ITS/TST role was born I started talking with my ITS here about what is the process and what do they do. I started talking to one ITS in particular – this was before everyone had Google accounts – he somehow got me a Google account and I started using Google Classroom and G Suite tools with my students and I was just obsessed. I loved it.
What’s your favorite part about being an Instructional Technology Specialist?
My favorite part of being an ITS is being everywhere. I’m in so many different people’s classrooms. I get to talk and collaborate with so many different grade levels, subject areas, and people outside the division. I have the chance to be on the Anchor School Committee. I’m on the Summer Digital Learning Summit Steering Committee. There are so many opportunities to collaborate with people.
What do you do outside of work?
I recently got engaged in December and I have done nothing up to a month ago, so I am crazy planning for a wedding happening next summer. I also just completed my master’s degree in May of this year.
