Meet the March Teacher of the Month Finalists
Nefertiti Dukes | March 20, 2019
It's nearing the end of March. That means it's time for our Teacher of the Month finalists. It was our pleasure to announce Nathan Perry as our February recipient amongst a field of outstanding candidates. As always, it was exceedingly difficult to narrow the applicants down to a top three.
Now, it's your turn to do the hard work. Between today and March 25, a poll will be active on our Twitter account. After you have had a chance to learn more about the candidates below, cast your vote for the educator you think is most deserving of being crowned March Teacher of the Month.
Candidate 1: The Choice Master
Kristen works with a special age group: middle school students. Teaching math, she's come to two realizations: students need fresh activities and they prefer to have choice. As such, she's worked to give her students tons of choices to demonstrate their learning. Screencastify is a fan favorite amongst her Math gurus and we couldn't be happier to nominate her for our March Teacher of the Month competition.
Candidate 2: The Playmaker
Amy Hancock is an elementary school P.E. teacher. She uses Screencastify to encourage students to reflect on their performance and improve. Each game is filmed using the extension. After the game, students watch the footage and collaborate to improve their performance ahead of their next competition. As an added twist, Amy also uses Screencastify to help students through Google's CS First Curriculum. We're incredibly excited to include Amy in our Teacher of the Month competition!
Candidate 3: The Literacy Guru
Heather is an English teacher and avid user of Screencastify. In fact, she has even led professional development courses to teach other teachers how to use the tool. In her classroom, students use Screencastify to track their fluency. But, it doesn't end there. Students have also used Screencastify to produce their own readers theatre programs and record their own poetry. We're incredibly excited to include Heather amongst our March Teacher of the Month finalists.
