With Jaclyn you get a unique combination of media designer and educator. Jaclyn began her career in education after her successful work as a media consultant and award winning graphic designer in New York. Extending two years beyond her initial contract with the Nation's Teach For America Program , Jaclyn transitioned to Warren New Tech High School in Warrenton, North Carolina, where she taught Digital Media classes and helped start the school in its first two years of operation.
While there she assisted in the establishment of a school wide 1:1 Project Based Learning platform and has earned 21 Century Certified Educator status through the nation’s New Tech Foundation after sharing her experience and best practices with educators and state administrators in a number of workshops and lectures around the country. Though she is no longer in the classroom, Jaclyn continues to assist teachers to incorporate technology and blended learning models into their curriculum. Currently she is a consultant for North Carolina State University’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, and August 2012 will begin the launch of her most recent project, the national online community of practice epiced.org: a partnership with the U.S. department of education and Connected Educators to create a collaborative and innovative resource and network for educators embarking on Digital Transition.
