I’m Chrissy, an educator with the zodiac sign, Sagittarius – hence the inspiration for my site name!
Prior to moving overseas, I worked in a primary school and middle school learning environment. I am completely and utterly passionate about the use of technology in the classroom! This website is connects to my blog about my learning journey through this amazing world of Web2.0. It’s exciting and motivating and time-consuming (in a good way) and it’s a journey that has put the “oommf” back into how I teach!
The TeachingSagittarian blog was my starting point as a “blogger” and using “wikis” after being inspired by people like Vicki Davis, David Warlick, and Jennifer Wagner to give it a go. These three people gave me feedback when I first started posting and I will always be grateful to them for taking the time to encourage my learning journey through Web2.0 technology. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I hope that you can go away with “something” as I do when I read the many blogs and bloggers I follow.
For the last five years I’ve been working in an International School in Bangkok, Thailand. First as a Grade 5 classroom teacher, then two years as the Elementary Technology and Learning Coach, before returning to the classroom to teach and learn with 3rd graders. My passion for technology use in the classroom is still strong, and the opportunities to meet and work with educators has increased significantly since working overseas.
Currently, I am available to schools as a technology and learning consultant or professional development facilitator. Please feel free to contact me about my services or any questions you may have about using technology in the classroom.
