About Mrs. Elizabeth Calderwood

** Edmodo Certified Trainer II**I became a teacher in order to share my love for learning and science with young eager minds.I am a 7th grade science teacher and technology resource teacher at Southern Regional Middle School in Manahawkin, NJ.  I have been teaching for 12 years and for the last four years have been focusing on the effective use of educational technology in the classroom. In December 2013, I became an Edmodo Certified Trainer and Edmodo Ambassador in the first cohort.  In 2014, I became the co-organizer of TeachMeetNJ (www,teachmeetnj.com) – a free educational technology un-conference for teachers and administrators.  Un-conferences throw away the formalities of traditional conferences so true learning and collaborating can happen.  Also in 2014, I became an organizer for a regional conference called ECET2NJPA.  ECET2 (Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers) is a conference that provides a forum for exceptional teachers to learn from one another and to celebrate the art od the teaching profession.I enjoy presenting and sharing the lessons that I have learned about working in a limited technology environment (with the help of Edmodo - of course) and on other various educational technology topics.  I have presented on these topics at EdmodoCon 2013, the NJ Science Teachers Convention 2014, and as an ISTE Live 2014 Presenter.  I have also received different forms of recognition from my district for my efforts and passion for sharing with my colleagues.  In 2013 I received the district nomination for NJ State Teacher of the Year and as the 2014 nominee for the Princeton Distinguished Educators Award.Google Certified Educator Level 1Follow me: @liz1544About Me: http://about.me/liz.calderwood
