Meet Christine Yarzabeck, First Grade Teacher
How are you involved in education?
I am a first grade teacher in Hershey, PA! (The Sweetest Place on Earth!) Hershey is in Derry Township School District.
What’s your ideal classroom or school like?
In my ideal classroom, I would have little netbooks for each kiddo! We spend a lot of time in the computer lab and so it would be incredible to have them stored in our own classroom. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE some iPod touches or iPads too to help me teach reading groups and have students use independently!
I already have a SmartBoard and Promethean voting eggs that we always use!
Have you ever attended an unconference before?
This is my first unconference! I’ve been to many conferences…but am so excited for this one! Excited to connect with members of my PLN from twitter!
If you were to lead a session at EdCamp, what would it be about?
– I love using Glogster and would love to share with anyone who would like to learn!
– I have many web resources organized by category that I could share.
– I love creating wiki pages and setting up various widgets; glogs, vokis, games, etc..etc…I use my wiki page to communicate with parents and post spelling words, newsletters, and pictures.
Do you have a website or blog?
Are you on Twitter?
What is your favorite digital tool?
My SmartBoard; Twitter, Glogster, Storybird, Wikis, my list could go on and on!
