We are thrilled to announce a new series on Teacher2Teacher, @SimplySuzy Says! Suzy Brooks, the Associate Director of Instructional Technology for Mashpee Public Schools in Massachusetts, will be curating articles and resources on the topics that matter most to teachers and sharing them with the T2T community. Read on to learn more about Suzy and get a sneak peek into the series.
No matter my job title or my role in education, I am a teacher to my very core. I have had the benefit of working with students and families as an elementary classroom teacher on Cape Cod. At the same time, I have worked with extraordinary organizations in education including EdWeek, NBC News’ Education Nation, Instructor Magazine, Intel, TenMarks/Amazon, the Gates Foundation, ASCD and the NEA. My experiences inside and outside of the classroom have allowed me a unique view within the education community, and I love connecting with teachers worldwide.
The Internet is a vast resource with endless opportunities to broaden our worldview while sharpening our focus on student learning. I love sharing articles that make me think, in the hopes we all become deeper thinkers and clearer reflectors. I hope you enjoy the pieces I curate for @SimplySuzy Says and find them useful for your teaching practice–below is the first!
Feedback matters! Have you & your students weighed in on the new ISTE standards? Your voices are valuable in shaping the coming years of student growth in regards to technology. Read more here.
