"As a Pre-K education manager in Baltimore City Public Schools, I’m responsible for the professional development of early education teachers. My improved skill set from being in the Hopkins program has had direct benefits for my work. I’ve learned new ways to make more learning materials available to teachers and I’m now working on innovative ways ipads can be used to support literacy and math instruction in PreK classrooms. This program is preparing me for life in the digital age."
