Your Technology Learning Coach

Hi!

My name is Daina Roberts and I am very excited to be your Instructional Technology Learning Coach (TLC) for the 2017-2018 school year! I am looking forward to helping you integrate technology and digital content into your classroom instruction this year!

Throughout the year, I will be providing you with a variety of resources for you and your students.


To get started, here is a link to my colleague Beverly Burks’ Promethean Back to School lesson using the new ActivInspire format ClassFlow. --> https://goo.gl/QjM696

Start Your Year Off Right With Working Technology!

More About Me

Prior to becoming a TLC, I was a classroom teacher for 8 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have had the pleasure of teaching Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd during those eight years. I also interned in Kinder and 4th during my college years! I have taught in self-contained classrooms, as well as departmentalized classrooms.


I'm happy that I've taught such a wide range of grade levels as it truly helps me to understand the needs of each level and how different they all are. I've always been the type to try new things and just jump right in! I hope to help everyone try new things this year in regards to tech integration with the curriculum! If you're afraid to try new things, that's OK, because I'm not, and I'm here to support you! No matter how long you've been teaching, digital learning and tech integration is very possible and can be done!
