Meet the January Teacher of the Month Finalists
Nefertiti Dukes | January 26, 2019
This month, we had the pleasure of launching our brand new Teacher of the Month Initiative. We received applications from instructional coaches, administrators, and teachers across a multitude of subjects. The entries spanned three countries and five states. Needless to say, it was hard to narrow the applications down to the top three.
Now, it's time for the Twittersphere to step in. Between today and January 30, a poll will be active on our Twitter page. When you've had a chance to learn more about the candidates below, head to Twitter to vote for the most deserving candidate.
Candidate 1: The Jack of All Trades
Meredith is making sure to reach both teachers and students! In the classroom, she used Screencastify to differentiate instruction. She notes that the tool allowed her to clone herself. With thirty students and only one of her, it was hard to reach everyone before she found Screencastify. As a coach, Meredith has has shared Screencastify with other teachers through lunch and learns. We are so proud of the work Meredith has done to engage both students and colleagues.
Candidate 2: The Announcer
Billy has taken it upon himself to change the title of contest and we couldn't be more excited. He serves as the principal at Mayfield High School in Kentucky. As principal, he uses Screencastify to create his "week ahead" videos for students, parents, and teachers. Billy explained that this is just one of the ways he celebrates the success of students. We are so proud of Billy's use of Screencastify to connect all stakeholders.
Candidate 3: The Master Collaborator
Mark is doing amazing work all the way in the United Kingdom! While he is officially a technology teacher, he has charged himself with the task of teaching all subjects. He noticed that his students were behind in their reading and writing proficiency. Unfortunately, their teachers had very little time to help them catch up. So, he has used his classroom to help reinforce lessons from across the building using Screencastify. We are proud of Mark's commitment to teach students rather than a subject.
All of these candidates are amazing, but there can only be one winner. Head to Twitter to vote for the most deserving candidate.
