Google Teacher Academy Application

Whew!  My application made it!

This past Sunday was the submission day for application for Google Teacher Academy.  It is ironic that the submission day was also my birthday.  I'm hoping that is a good sign.

I'm hoping to be selected to learn aside many other GTA educators and continue to network and build my Professional Learning Network.

What do I hope to gain from GTA:

  • Connect with educators from all over the world
  • Build and grow my Professional Learning Network
  • Add my expertise in grading, assessment and flip-teaching to the GTA
  • Improve my knowledge and skill in the area of Google Apps
  • The ability to come back to my district and train other educators since we are a google Apps district.
  • Become a better user of sketchUp
  • Begin and continue my love of Google Products!

Produced by CUE, each Academy is an intensive, two-day event during which participants get hands-on experience with Google's free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and immerse themselves in a supportive community of educators making impact.
