Elizabeth Bartholomae, Awarded by Data Recycling of NE
My name is Elizabeth Bartholomae, and I teach 6th grade for Pembroke Public Schools. I went to Boston College and graduated in 2014 with a degree in education, majoring in elementary education and applied psychology/human development. I am currently working on my Master’s at Bridgewater State University while concurrently working as a 6th grade teacher in Pembroke Public Schools. I teach math and science, and work so hard to give my students the opportunity to love learning as much as I do. Technology plays a huge role in engaging my modern students in their education and allows them to advocate for their learning style, while learning at a pace that is appropriate for their needs. I am always looking for new ways to pique their interest and for this reason, I am so grateful to have the opportunity to attend MassCUE.
Matthew Paskov, Awarded by Custom Computer Specialists
I fell into the technology side of education just by being knowledgeable, something I credit to my own interests aswell as being born after 1990. I began facilitating other teachers when I was a sub in Hartford and quickly saw I was very capable of facilitating not only other educators but the school as a whole. In my fourth year as an educator I will be heading up the roll-out of 1 to 1 laptops for our 1400 students, furthermore this year our district is switching to Unified Classroom and Microsoft Office suite from Brightspace. Given these fast and substantial changes my school and district are going through, I am excited to experience and learn about the advancements technology is making in education, and to bring that understanding back to Springfield.
