Technology teaching honors go to FA’s Morrison
DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Association of Computer Technology Educators of Maine (ACTEM) recently presented Foxcroft Academy faculty member Mia Morrison with the 2016 Achieve Award during the organization’s annual conference and awards reception. The ACTEM Achieve Award goes to the top technology teacher/leader during the past year.
Morrison teaches in the English Department at Foxcroft Academy and she works with staff and faculty integrating the latest technologies into all classrooms. Her hands on approach to technology is evident in the classroom setting where she uses the school’s 1:1 iPad’s to the fullest capacity.
“I believe this award reaffirms Foxcroft’s position as a leader in the use of technology in the classroom,” Morrison said. “Using these latest advances is not just an option anymore. Our students need to leave here with a base knowledge of the technology around them. I feel we have been out in front of the curve with this.”
Morrison is no stranger to honors as she has won several technology awards over the last 10 years. Morrison was named an Apple Distinguished Educator in 2013 and was named Piscataquis County’s Teacher of the Year in 2015.
