About Mrs. Dara Cepeda

e-Portfolio: http://edtech-cepeda.weebly.com/index.html Career  In 2006, I started teaching Art and Computer Animation at Myra Green Middle School in Raymondville, TX. Since the beginning of my teaching career, I have integrated technology in my lessons such as PowerPoint and YouTube videos, because these enhance the lesson with visual-aids. In 2011, I was selected to be part of the MSTTPA go Tech! program (Science and Technology Teacher Preparation Academy) at UT Brownsville. During this educational journey I have seen the impact technology is making in education. I have implemented several Web 2.0 tools in my lessons which have given student motivation to learn, create, and present. I have created class websites and wikis to provide more class sources, maintain communication with parents and students, post lessons, assignments and homework for the students who are absent. After facilitating more technology tools in my class, I noticed my students were more enthusiastic and were willing to collaborate, participate, plan, discuss, create, and present with the given tools of technology. It's great to see the great potential educators can put in the students' hands when they provide a world of possibilities. I obtained my Masters at the University of Texas at Brownsville in Education in Educational Technology and am certified as a Master Technology Teacher.  I am currently working at Raymondville ISD as an Instructional Technology Facilitator.  I'm looking forward to see what the future holds for this year with fresh ideas, challenges and triumphs.
