Vicki Davis: The Cool Cat Teacher
Vicki Davis, the creator of The Cool Cat Teacher Blog, created this blog to help teachers find a way to reach each of their students. Davis is a full time teacher and IT director at a small school in Georgia. She believes that "teaching is a noble calling, and that as teachers, we need encouragement, ideas, and support from one another." As teachers, we are all in this together, and can learn different ideas to incorporate into our classrooms. The Cool Cat Teacher helps us educators stay connected. Davis is an inspirational educator because she almost quit teaching after three years of teaching, but instead, decided to strive to be the best teacher she could be for her students. She did not give up, even though teaching was not easy at first. She became better through her own family. Davis had two of her very own children that "learned differently" in the classroom. She said this pushed her to "learn what works to teach kids who struggle." Her life inside and outside of her classroom improved tremendously after dealing with this situation. Some of the lessons she learned from her own children who struggled were "how to use technology to be a better teacher, how to build a better relationship with her students, and how to better manage her life at home and school." Davis shares what she learned about this on her blog. This has made her become very successful and popular with her job as a teacher, but also with her blog and spreading her tips on how to be a better teacher. Davis can help you as an educator by helping you to better understand how to use technology to enhance your lessons, how to get your students motivated and engaged, and how to keep organized. As teachers, we are lifelong learners, so I would highly encourage you to check out The Cool Cat Teacher Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube videos, and Twitter to help you become the best teacher that you possibly can be!
