What is your Edulastic story?
I stumbled on Edulastic while I was looking for more independent practice for my students prior to their state exam. Edulastic has been a game changer in my classroom.
What inspired you to work in education?
23 years ago I made a career change and thought I’d give teaching a try. Well, I gave it more than a try. I love this career choice and would never go back.
What do you love about Edulastic?
I love that in Edulastc I can search by standard or topic and I can build resources that aline very closely with my content and state exams. I also like the fact that my students can test again and again and again until they have ownership of the material being covered.
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is simple; love what you do and your students will know it. Make learning interesting and fun and be happy to come to school everyday.
What is your Edulastic #BestKeptSecret?
The best thing about Edulastic is that you can build resources and use them again and again and it’s very easy to make changes.
