Dr Sarah Thomas is a Regional Technology Coordinator in Prince Georges County, MD, and Affiliate Faculty at Loyola University. She recently graduated with a PhD in International Education in December 2017; however, the learning never ends. ​Much of the learning that she does is not from a textbook: it comes from inquiry and collaboration.  Sarah feels that the way we grow as educators and people is by learning from each other. This learning is facilitated by deep connections. 

While she is still passionate about best practices, such as flipped/blended learning and gamification, her passion has also expanded to helping educators connect globally.  This is the rationale behind the EduMatch project, which Sarah founded in September 2014.  The project belongs to all EduMatchers, and it has grown to include Voxer, guest blogging, and a weekly Twitter chat/podcast.

Sarah loves to connect with other educators, because she strongly believes that we are all experts at something, and can learn so much from each other!  Let your voice be heard, and let's all grow together!

Mr. Nesi has developed and presented professional development workshops to K-12 and collegiate educators about social media, connected learning, technology integration strategies, and podcasting. New technologies are always becoming available and the expansion of an educators’ understanding and use of these innovations for personal and professional use motivate Nesi.
