Media Specialists and Instructional Technology Specialists,
First District RESA ETC will be hosting a Media Specialist/Instructional Technology Specialist Collaborative on Friday, September 29, 2017 at the Performing Arts Center in Hinesville, GA. We recognize the similarities and differences in these two vitally important roles and we are planning sessions to address those areas that overlap as well as sessions that are job specific. Below are some of the topics that are in the works and the registration details. We hope to see you on September 29th!
First District RESA congratulates our 2017 Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) Ambassadors, Justin Griffith and Valerie Thompson! The GaTAPP Ambassador program is sponsored by a grant through the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. The program recognizes and highlights outstanding teachers who have entered the teaching profession through the non-traditional educator preparation path.
Justin is a Georgia Southern graduate who originally planned to coach at the collegiate level. After relocating back to Statesboro, taking a job as a paraprofessional, he found that his true passion was working with kids. The GaTAPP program has made it possible to combine his newfound love of learning and teaching.
Valerie holds a degree in animal science from the University of Georgia. She has raised four children as a stay-at-home mom and has taught language arts, math, and science to multiple grade levels at a local private school. She now teaches seventh grade language arts at Screven County Middle School and strives to inspire a love of reading and life-long learning in her students.
