Educating Students and Educators to embrace change and change the world
Welcome! My name is Sandra Picacio-Hernandez and I am a graduate student at Lamar University majoring in Digital Learning and Leadership. I chose to pursue a Masters Degree to enhance my skills in the classroom and potentially further my career. For the past 16 years I have truly loved servicing 3- to 4-year old children with special needs as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher.
By browsing my e-Portfolio, you will discover insight into my experiences as a classroom teacher, colleague, and my hopes for change in education. You will be able to view discussion responses, assignments, and projects that I have fostered while pursuing my masters degree. I consciously refrained from saying “assignments/projects that I have completed”.
I say this because as I am, my thoughts/writings are works in progress! As we all are! I am constantly evolving and pushing myself to be a better colleague and educator. I thank you for your interest and welcome questions and/or comments for growth.
