Common Sense Media Certified Educator

I am happy to announce that I am officially a Common Sense Media Certified Educator! What does that mean? Basically, I completed a training course online that prepared me to better support you as we all work to help our students become better digital citizens. "Living in a 24/7 digitally connected world, students today must learn how to navigate issues like cyber-bullying, privacy and safety."

I am passionate about helping our students be the best they can and I see this as a big step towards that.
