Meet the Speakers

Karen Ford

8th Grade ELA
Annie Sullivan Middle School
Hopkinton, MA

I am an 8th grade English Language Arts teacher in Franklin, Massachusetts. This is my 6th year teaching, and prior to being a teacher, I was a social worker for adolescents. I am fortunate to be in a school in which my students have one-to-one Google Chromebooks. I have been passionate about the use of technology in the classroom since I have been a teacher because of its ability to enrich the classroom environment in so many ways.
