HLWW TIES Exceptional Teacher Award Winners!
Carol Meyerson has been a teacher leader in instruction and technology from the onset of her teaching career. Carol consistently uses technology to enhance her best practice instructional strategies on a daily basis. Through her use of Chromebooks and Google Drive she has taught her students not only to collaborate but to accurately reflect on their own learning. This refection provides Carol with formative assessment information which she immediately uses to adjust her instruction and meet her student’s needs. In addition Carol has shared her expertise and experience’s with her colleague’s so they too, can benefit from the use of this technology. Finally Carol has utilized technology to communicate with parents and inform them of many online learning opportunities she has available to facilitate her students learning in seventh and eighth grade science.
Jesse Robertson has been instrumental in technology integration in District #2687 since his arrival last year. During his short time in our district, he has overseen the development and rollout of a high school 1-to-1 Chromebook program. His expertise and insight into technology has assisted the entire high school community to expand the walls of the classrooms beyond what we thought was possible only a few years ago. In addition to the Chromebook program, he is a “go to” expert for students and staff who need training in various areas such as Google Docs, SMARTBoard technologies, online data systems, as well as trouble-shooting our computers and Chromebooks. Jesse Robertson easily fits the profile of a TIES award winner and there is no doubt that through his skillset he will continue to grow our school community to become a leader in the use of technology in educational settings.
