Education | Pinner Kris Devereaux

Meet Kris Devereaux
Zionsville West Middle School Principal Kris Devereaux uses a variety of social media tools to support her work and learning. Visit the school website and you can examine her recent reads on an embed Shelfari shelf. You'll also spy the familiar blue button leading to a school Facebook page.  About a year ago, Kris began using Pinterest and a little over a month ago one of her pins caught our attention. You know this middle school administrator shares a sense of humor with her faculty when she pins, "Math is a drama queen. It can't seriously have that many problems." 

What prompted you to begin pinning?
I knew it would be a great way to capture resources and ideas.

Why do you prefer Pinterest over other tools?
I love the fact that I can follow others who pin topics that are of interest to me - such as digital learning. It is such a huge time saver, and I have found really great ideas to implement at school and share with my teachers.

Any particular recommendations to Follow?
Christopher Pappas - Free eLearning Resources
Wendy Brennan - Teaching Resources
Janny Hamelmann - Education Math
Jane Green - Social Studies
Sara Ellenz - Language Arts
Chris Hug - Technologically Speaking

Can you share any advice for new Pinners?
Think of something that you really enjoy or a need you have (like a new appetizer recipe). Do a search for that topic and pin away! The more specific you can be with your Boards, the easier it will be to find things after you have pinned them.
