One of the greatest challenges that teachers are facing today is how they can improve their teaching practices by working with new technology in their classroom. With the rapid development & availability of new technological tools, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of which tools work and which don’t.
TeachPitch and its Digital Skills Program are continuously looking for solutions to ease this frustration by helping teachers worldwide quickly adapt to new effective ways of teaching methods to boost and improve their everyday experiences in classrooms.
One of our star instructors is Candice Zakariya from Dallas, USA who shares her experience with us on how her journey with the Digital Skills Program has been so far.
Candice is a former public school middle grades (4-8) math teacher with over 12 years experience in the classroom. She currently teaches children and adults all around the world in the ever-growing independent online teaching industry. She is also passionate about being a 21st century educator and has dedicated herself to equipping teachers to gain confidence in digital literacy for both the classroom and entrepreneurship.
