Tell us a bit about yourself.

I have been teaching for 11 years now.  I started out teaching 7th grade math and eventually transferred over to the high school.

What do you teach?

I now teach Integrated Math 2, Integrated Math 3 and Stats.shutterstock_411197590.jpg

Why did you become a teacher?

I was originally going to school to become an accountant when a friend asked me to be a tutor for the AVID program.  At that point I fell in love with teaching and helping the students with their successes.  My accounting path changed to a liberal studies path.

How did you hear about Edcite?

A couple of years ago a friend introduced me to Edcite and instantly I saw the potential of this program and the benefit it would bring to our school district.

How do you use Edcite in the classroom?

I use Edcite for class assignments, performance tasks, quizzes, etc.  Our district now uses Edcite Schools for our secondary district assessments.

What aspects make you most “Edcited” about Edcite?

Some of the aspects that make me most “Edcited” about Edcite are the instant feedback the students get, the organization of the reports that Edcite creates for the teachers, the wide range of question formats available and the amazing support from Edcite.

Final Words of Wisdom for other Edcite Users? :)

Do not get discouraged with your first creation!  Once you get the hang of things you will be able to create amazing interactive assessments and/or tasks.
