Team Member Showcase
Let's take it back to the beginning of last year when we visited with current Instructional Technology Program Specialist, Heather Van Looy, while she was the tech coach at River Trail. Hear about how Personalized Learning was taking place at River Trail and take a look around Vanguard member Gina Ceely's classroom.
Please consider signing up to showcase your work and/or your school. We would like to highlight all areas of the county, all academic levels, and all personalized learning principles. You're doing great work! Share it with others!
