Meet Mandi Cloud, Kindergarten Teacher

What’s your first and last name?

  • Mandi Cloud

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • Kindergarten Teacher

How are you involved in education?

  • I have taught at Limestone Technology Academy in Sand Springs for 11 years. I have 25 Kindergarten brainiacs in my class who come to me with a variety of experiences and knowledge, but they are all eager to learn! For many of them, I am their first school experience, and I pride myself in making it a positive one! Outside of the classroom I am an advocate for public education and a lifelong learner! I’m also an #EdCampJunkie! I’m a co-organizer of #EdCampScience

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • My ideal classroom would be full of inquiry and fun! My (small) class of Kindergarten students would all be learning and working at their own pace, and not constantly being assessed! They would also be using their 1:1 technology to solve problems, as well as to create and publish their work!

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • Getting to Know the New OAS for Science or Project Based Learning for Elementary

You are invited to EdCampScience!  It is an opportunity to connect with other science educators to collaborate, explore, learn, seek, encourage, and create deep, meaningful, standards-based instruction, lessons, units, resources, and so on. The sky is the limit! The best part? It’s all FREE, including breakfast and lunch!

This is EdCamp, an UNconference where there are no rules.  This is your chance to choose the sessions you want to attend, create your own sessions, or collaborate with friends to start or join conversations that are important to you.

Integration of technology? Online learning – is it possible in science? Standards Based Grading? Use of Hands-On Investigations? How to engage the accelerated learner without dipping into next year’s standards?  Just a few of the 100’s of ideas you may have for conversations that will allow you to strengthen your science instruction immediately.

Spread the word, tell your friends, bring your colleagues, but get registered quick because this conference closes at 200 registrations.  See you there!
