Featured Teacher: Shelly Fryer
Join us Saturday, October 15th as 3rd and 4th grade teacher Shelly Fryer @sfryer will join us as our October Featured Teacher. Shelly will share how she uses a variety of strategies, apps, and technologies to build classroom community, differentiate learning to meet individual student needs in literacy and math, and promote a culture of making and creating. In addition to helping her students feel safe in their classroom family, Shelly is focused on helping students love learning at school. Shelly is passionate about helping students share their voices beyond the walls of their classroom. She teaches at a special school in Oklahoma City, Positive Tomorrows @ptokc, which exclusively serves homeless students and families. Shelly has been a teacher for over 20 years, and is in her fourth year teaching in a 1:1 iPad classroom. Shelly became a PBS Digital Learning Innovator (@pbsteachers) in 2014, and is a Fellow with Oklahoma A+ Schools (@okaplus) promoting arts integration and creativity in the classroom.
