A little about me… I’m a high school English teacher and technology coordinator who values each and every opportunity I get to encourage and inspire educators to blend effective instruction and innovative digital resources in an effort to increase student learning and success.
My name is Caitlin Cloyd, but you can find me on Twitter @DreamLearning. I’m a high school English teacher with a Master’s Degree in Educational Technology Leadership.
My passion for digital learning comes from my desire to help our schools – teachers, students, admins, and parents – to use the vast array of tools of the 21st century to improve the way we learn and evolve. I am in my happy place when I am either designing engaging lessons for my students or sharing innovative resources with my colleagues. It’s not just my hobby; it’s my passion and obsession.
When I’m not deep in the trenches of researching and sharing innovative practices and resources, I love to read. I am usually enthralled by historical fiction novels and do my best to keep up with young adult literature to make sure I always have a good book to recommend to my students. In fact, this year, I started a 40 Book Challenge with both my students and the staff at my school. I’m currently on book #24 this school year! Connect with me on Good Reads to see what I’ve been into lately.
I am always interested in connecting with passionate educators and growing my Professional Learning Network. Feel free to find and connect with me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Google+!
