Greetings! A new season brings a new MinecraftEdu Featured Educator!
This month, we bring you Sara Richards, a teacher who started fresh with MinecraftEdu and has been blogging about her experiences (not unlike another MinecraftTeachr). What’s great about Sara’s experiences are that she comes to Minecraft completely fresh. With a little tenacity and some student guidance, she’s created an active and vibrant learning environment for her students.
My name is Sara Richards, and I am an Instructional Technology Specialist at Laurel Mountain Elementary in Austin, Texas. I help teachers meaningfully integrate technology into their lessons, as well as teach Google Apps, 3D modeling and printing, coding, Making, and (of course) Minecraft to students in K-5.
