Hi! My name is Samantha Cast. I graduated Texas A&M in 2013 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am currently in my fourth year as a Texas history teacher in Coppell ISD. I love teaching Texas History because there are so many interesting stories about Texas (and yes, there is more to Texas than the Alamo!).
In my district, we have a 1:1 student to device ratio. Our students received iPads last year, so I had a front row seat to the change that happened in our school. I have really enjoyed using the iPads in class to enhance my lesson designs. I frequently use Google Apps for Education (Classroom, Drive, Sheets, Docs etc), Schoology, Peardeck, Explain Everything, Notability and more. I try to use the SAMR model as I develop my lessons. I want to use technology well and in a meaningful way.
