Mrs. Lambert's Bio
In my seventeen years of teaching, I’ve worn many hats. I graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Speech Language Pathology, Audiology, and Elementary Education. I moved from my life long home in Pittsburgh to become a Speech Language Pathologist, working with children from preschool to high school life skills in Virginia. I moved to a second grade elementary classroom when I was selected to travel to Egypt. There I learned about the country and culture and then taught via the Internet back to my classroom for 12 days. The experience helped to spark my interest in technology integration.
Twelve years ago, I moved back to Pennsylvania where I taught kindergarten and first grades. I developed curriculum for middle school and some high school technology classes. I became an Educational and Instructional technology specialist (like CFF coach) for our entire charter school from K-12. My position entailed pushing into classrooms to model integration lessons and support the teachers in developing their lessons. I enjoy integrating with SMART notebook, podcasting, and digital photography. One important goal of mine is to educate parents about child safety online with an emphasis on parental involvement and monitoring appropriate Internet use. My newest passion (besides my husband and two adorable young children) is finding ways to increase global learning and video conferencing into the classrooms. Technology is always changing so it is my job to prepare, educate, and support the next generation of learners.
