About Me

 I am a Junior/Intermediate Learning Disabilities Teacher and Empower Reading Program Teacher with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. 

I was an Edmodo Support Ambassador (ESA) for 2 years until the end of August 2014. I used Edmodo daily from the fall of 2011 to June 2014. I now used Edmodo to connect with other Educators outside my District as well as to see what is current in the communities. 

I initially used a Wiki and then progressed to Edmodo. I am now using a Blog, created using Blogger, as well as Google Apps for Education, Actively Learn, Socrative, Class Dojo, and Padlet.

From Sept. 16, 2013, to January, 2014, I moderated the Special Education New Users Group. 2011-2012 was our first full school year using Edmodo and also our first entirely paperless year in our 1:1 classroom. As of June 7, 2013, the students have not used a single piece of paper in class for 377 days! (I will no longer count as of the 2013-2014 school year; we DID it!) I reached a sharing score of 25 000 on Sept. 15, 2013 @21:55.

(The naval crown is shown in red inside the maple leaf.)
