About Me

I graduated from the University of Hawaii with a Bachelor's degree in Zoology and a Master's in Education in Secondary Science Teaching. I also have my Master's of Education in Instructional Media from Wilkes University. I have been teaching middle school for 13 years in both public and private schools. I have 4 years experience as a 1:1 laptop teacher in the middle school science classroom. I currently serve as an Instructional Technology Specialist and enjoy helping both teachers and students to effectively integrate technology. I enjoy sharing both locally and nationally about how I integrate technology into the curriculum, including presenting at Edmodocon 2011 and 2012. I was honored to be named an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Certified Teacher & Apps Certified Trainer, a Siemens STEM fellow, and an Edmodo Featured Blogger. I currently serve as a member of the Apple Challenge Based Learning Advisory Board. I would love to connect with anyone interested in collaboration and connecting our students. Please join our Global Connections Group if you would like to connect your students to other classrooms around the world. http://www.edmodo.com/home#/join/f8da939ede13930cdd9f9698ae27aa33 Twitter: @liz_castillo http://www.lizcastillo.net
