Margaret Middleton
Library Media Specialist
K. C. Heffernan Elementary School
Marcellus Central School District


With more than 12 years of teaching experience, Margaret is the Library Media Specialist at K.C. Heffernan (K-3) for the Marcellus Central School District. Margaret joined Marcellus CSD in 2012, following nine years working for the Fulton City School District as a special education teacher.

What are some of the innovative ways that Margaret integrates technology into her curriculum?
Margaret is a video conferencing champion. She actively promotes the benefits of video conferencing to her school's educators in an effort to incorporate distance learning into every classroom. To help spread the word to teachers about the power of video conferencing, Margaret created this public service announcement. Her efforts have paid off, as nearly every teacher at K. C. Heffernan has incorporated a video conference into a lesson this school year. "My goal is to have every child in the school experience at least one video conference per year," said Margaret. "The more teachers that participate, the more value they see in video conferencing." [more...]
