What is your favorite iPad app to use with students and why?
Popplet and Recap are my favorite apps. I really like using recap app for exit tickets in my class. Its a great way to get feedback from students. I use this feedback to alter my lesson plans to strive to meet every student learning style. Popplet is one of my favorite apps also! Its an awesome educational tool that can be use for student collaboration and organizing. I like for students to use this app to create graphic organizer for research projects.
What do you like to do in your leisure time?
I love to spend time with my family, working out, and doing yard work.
