Wednesday Professional Development - Tech Talks with Ms. Peters
At the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, my principal allowed me to speak during our Wednesday professional development meetings about different technologies. I have shown my staff how to use the technology we already have and how to incorporate new technology into their teaching. I enjoy teaching my staff what I have learned from my degree program.
