Jefferson County Schools are well represented at the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference in Murfreesboro this week!  The group of teacher-leader-learners includes teachers from elementary, middle, and high schools.  Not only is our team here to learn, we have several teacher leading sessions this year!  Not only are we learners, many of these dynamic educators also submitted proposals to present at the conference.  Congratulations to the following teachers who were selected as presenters:

  •  Debbie Webster (MMS) and Trish McCoy (MMS):  D4: Doing Data and Differentiation Digitally.
  • Ben Willings (NMES) and Rebekah Pettit (TES):  Blended Learning Strategies to Increase Rigor, Engagement, and Learning.
  • Katie Martin (PA):  Microsoft Teams! Let's Work Together!
  • Deedra Hillard (PDC):  Decisions, Decisions, Decisions, Microsoft Groups or Teams
  • Amy Sharp (PDC):  Evaluating EdTech Resources



The attendance of this number of teachers at a state conference would not be possible through Instructional Technology funding alone.  The investment of Professional Development funds by Jefferson Middle School, Maury Middle School, New Market Elementary School, and the District English Language Arts and Math Departments contributed greatly to this incredible learning opportunity.  


These EdTech Teacher-Leaders will be invited to provide encore performances at a PLCs and/or optional PD Sessions at the PDC during the spring semester!  Conference attendees will also be invited to share tools, strategies, and ideas that they learn.  Keep an eye out for these opportunities on the Professional Development Page.
