What’s your first and last name?
- Alyssa Henley
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?
- Technology Integration Coach/ GATE District Coordinator
How are you involved in education?
- I bring new technologies and ideas to our district. I help teachers integrate technology to enhance their curriculum. To take away some of the fear of trying new things, teachers schedule their classes with me and I work with the class modeling and co-teaching how to infuse the technology into their curriculum. I also provide professional development for the district and meet with teachers one-on-one. I also coordinate and teach our district’s gifted students.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- My ideal class is an environment where students are secure enough to build their confidence by taking risks and learning from their mistakes. I want students learning life principles and skill sets that will help my students be college and career ready.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
- Marketing yourself to your students ( past experience as a Vice President of Public Relations) , new teachers 101, active learning, technology integration, bringing science to life, code.org, or Chris Biffle’s Whole Brain Power Teaching.
