Meet Colin Higbee, School Support Specialist @OKSDE


What’s your first and last name?

  • Colin Higbee

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • School Support Specialist @ SDE

How are you involved in education?

  • I currently have the rewarding position of getting to serve schools and administrators in their efforts to increase student achievement. I graduated from OU in 1999 and have sought out as many different types of teaching experiences as possible. I’ve been very fortunate to be a counselor, teacher, content specialist, and camp director in Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, the K20 Center and most recently U.S. Grant High School in OKCPS.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • My ideal classroom would be one in which students were actively engaged in their own learning and the teacher was a facilitator. It would be one that is hands on and allows students to apply critical thinking and technology enhance their experience. I would love for a classroom that is interactive and gets kids out of their seats.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • Teaching students how to be a Historian.
