     My name is Daisy Marino.  I am a 4th grade teacher at Warren Elementary and campus Technology Mentor. I am currently working on my Masters in Educational Technology as well as my principal’s certificate.  Recently, I have had the privilege to be a part of Remind’s Teacher Advisory Board. Up until two years ago I barely utilized technology into my class’s daily routine.  Now, I use it every SINGLE day.  What happened?  First, I was invited to tour a school in Houston, Texas that was implementing technology into their classrooms in ways that I never could have imagined.  I left there that day a different teacher.  My eyes were opened.  These students were actively engaged.  They were thriving.  Most importantly, they were learning. I wanted my classroom to look like that.   Secondly, Twitter happened.  WHAAATT??  Yes, I was forced beyond my will to create a Twitter account.  They said it was the best professional development ever.  They said I would connect with other educators in ways that I could not imagine.  They said it would make me a better teacher.  They were right.  Twitter has endless possibilities.  I connect daily with like-minded educators from all over the world.  These teachers are innovative, they are doing amazing things in their classroom, but most importantly they are sharing.  And I LOVE it.  I hope that you will follow me on my journey of implementing technology in my classroom and staying connected.  I also hope that you will share some ideas with me!

     My favorite tech tools for my class:  Remind 101, Augmented Reality, Kidblog, Educreations, Write about This, QR codes, Prezi, Haiku Deck, Diptic, ThingLink, Popplet, TouchCast, Google ANYTHING, Book Creator, TinyScan, and of course….TWITTER!
