Meet Andy Losik

Andy Losik,
Technology teacher at Blue Star Elementary,
District digital learning coordinator, Hamilton, Michigan

“Although I come from a family of teachers, I wanted to be a sports writer. Unfortunately, my very small college didn’t have a journalism major. So when I took a class that involved helping out at the on-campus preschool it was obvious that I was called to do this.

What I love most about teaching is the kids. Seeing growth and “ah-ha” moments are infinitely rewarding.
We need to teach students to think for themselves and encourage them to continue to learn. All of the technology I teach will continually change. My students have to be able to attack learning a new tool or technique with an analytical mind.

Being a connected educator means never feeling like you are alone as you take on a new challenge. Others in your personal learning network are probably facing similar challenges. Together you can commiserate or swap tips, tricks, and stories about your battle scars.”
