I would like to introduce all of you to one of our most creative DEN members in Florida, Fotini Guzman. Fotini teaches computer graphics and applications (K-5) at Pleasant Hill Elementary School in Kissimmee, Florida. She did one of the most amazing unitedstreaming trainings I have ever seen. She limited her training to ten participants because she wanted to make it extra special and she sure did! Each teacher was asked where they were from and what their favorite candy was. Fotini got digital pictures of each participant before they came, downloaded a unitedstreaming video about their birth place and created a PowerPoint with their pictures and a unitedstreaming video embedded under their picture. It was amazing. It made the training so personal and gave the teachers a unique look at using video segments in their classroom. Not only did she introduce unitedstreaming, took them to the Learning Tool, Teacher Center and more. Oh, remember the candy? Each teacher received their favorite candy bar as a treat!
The teachers at Pleasant Hill know how wonderful it is to have Fotini at their school. She is the model of teachers connecting with other teachers and sharing what they know.
Thank you Fotini, for your dedication and service to teachers learning how to integrate technology.
As always, I am
