Greetings! I’ve been teaching for six years in public education. Whats really “Lit” as my students would convey about me is that I’ve been an instructor-educator for almost forty years. In my first 25 years, I traveled or deployed to over 80 countries. So culture and history tend to grow on you.
I am an Edpuzzle Master contributor, Quizlet ambassador and Wizer lesson builder. My hope is I can build more Texas and U.S. History lessons over the summer using Formative and provide differentiated models.
My students use about 18 online systems throughout the year. We are experimenting to build a history video game this summer. I encourage my students to be risk takers. Simple things like Blabberize and Flip Grid are great ways for my kids to express their understanding. I am a big Pear Deck user when I have to liven up my old traditional teaching models of direct lecture and this summer, I will be Screencastifying all my Google Slide presentations (30 are already made and will be posted to my website over the summer).
