About Me:
In August 2012 I moved to the American School of Guatemala to become the Technology Integration Specialist for Grades 2-5. I work predominately with the teachers and our main focus for the past eight months has been incorporating our new iPad program into the classroom.

Previously, for eight years I was a year 5/Grade 4 and then Year 4/ Grade 3 teacher, working at Yew Chung International School in Beijing. During my time in Beijing I fell in love with technology and was able to complete my Masters of Education in Integrated Technology from Walden University in December 2010.

I have followed the Flat Classroom projects with interest and had the privilege to attend the first Conference in Qatar which dramatically altered my previously very North American world view. I was also able to attend the 2011 Beijing Conference.

My Grade 3/Year 4 class was part of the pilot A Week in the Life project and it was exciting to see the students develop and begin to understand collaboration.

I am privileged to be a member of the third cohort of the Flat Classroom Certified Teacher program. I highly recommend it to any educator who is interested in developing a strong foundation in developing global collaboration projects that are authentic.

The opportunity to be a presenter at the Beijing Learning 2.011 Conference in 2011 led to doing a session at the 2012 Global Education Online Conference.

Hey Heather! sorry, I just found your friend request in my junk mail!!!  Let's communicate-- I can't find 23 videos in WWW, the way Julie L. says there are-- I only see 10. Am I missing something?

I enjoyed looking at your website and blog. We also recently studied the Iditarod...small world :).

Your school sound unique. I'm sure it's a wonderful place to teach. I also teach in a fantastic environment, but with far less diversity. All of my students speak English as a first language. They are, however, well traveled. I would love for them to be able to learn about a different culture, and have the experience of connecting with students around the world.

Our curriculum's look to be very similar. I spent some time teaching in Wales, and the overall philosophies of education are very compatible.

The time certainly poses a problem. As I look at the time differences, I see that it is 11:30 am by you, and it's 10:30 pm by me. Impossible? I hope not.

What is your skype name?

I am also a fourth grade teacher...looking to broaden my students' perspective. I teach in the suburbs of Chicago, and would love to get a "look into" a classroom in China.

Do you have Skype...I think it would be a wonderful experience to have our students meet, and perhaps discuss certain topics through skype (the visual will be so impt.). You interested?
