About Me

"EDMODO IS LIKE AN ONION.... IT HAS MANY LAYERS..."

WOW! 
Well, I used to be Ms Melkman (hence the middle name Melko!) but last year, during a trip to the USA to present at ISTE San Antonia, my now husband and I decided to go Las Vegas and get married by Elvis!!! WOOT WOOT!

I am crazy passionate Visual Arts teacher who has been using Edmodo since 2009!
I have enjoyed transforming my classroom with 1:1 devices and utilising 21st Century Skills to enhance my students learning. I share my love of learning as often as I can with other teachers, because I can see how collaboration and creative thinking can lead to increased learning and FUN in the classroom! 

I am proud of all my achievements throughout my career, including winning the 2010 NSW Ministers Quality Teaching Award, completing my Masters of Cross-Disciplinary in Art and Design in 2011. And in 2013 I was excited to present a workshop on Collaboration at ISTE. I have also presented at the first EDMODOCON in 2011; this was done virutally all way from Australia. And while at ISTE 2013, hung out and shared some ideas at the Edmodo booth.

My students and peers lovingly call me an EDUGEEK - and I am proud of this title!
