Your Digital Learning Specialist: Tiffany Achiu

Hi Tigers! I am very happy about the opportunity to work with your faculty and staff again this year! Prior to serving as a Digital Learning Specialist, I was a classroom teacher for 9 years and I am certified in the areas of Elementary Education and Technology Applications. I am eager to share my knowledge of digital learning integration with your campus' team and sincerely believe that I will learn from all of you as well. I am here to help you integrate technology seamlessly into your curriculum and assist you in building a strong foundation for our future leaders. I have included some of the digital learning tools found on your campus, ways to integrate these resources into your classroom, helpful Atomic Learning videos that may address some of your technology needs, and additional FBISD digital resources.
