Meet Sam Patterson

Sam Patterson
K-5 technology teacher, Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School.

 

“Being a connected educator means participating in local and global discussions about what grade education is. It also means having deep resources worldwide to help you puzzle out your trickiest problems. Lastly, it means that I can be useful to a teacher in a completely different location, and that is awesome.

What I love most about teaching is the deep connections you can make with other people, kids and adults.
When I started as a K-5 tech teacher I had no idea how much fun it would be. Now I am crafting playful lessons everyday that support content area learning. From Sphero robots to toy skateboards, there is so much to be learned in play. When I ask my students to explore, think, discover, and share, they all find opportunities to be successful”.
