Melissa Edwards

As a teacher, gifted education specialist, instructional technologist, blogger and learning facilitator, Melissa Edwards has seen ways in which creative thinking skills can make connections for learning. She believes there is creativity in each of us and we just need to figure out the best ways to let it out! Melissa also believes that for technology to be most effectively used in the classroom there has to be a curriculum reason to support it. Melissa likes to share things that appeal to a multitude of learning styles and which can be used to allow for differentiated instruction at all levels. She also enjoys reaching out and connecting with other educators through various blogs, including her own, "Figuring Out How the Pieces Fit."

Q & A with Melissa Edwards

If you weren't in education, what do you think you'd be doing and why?

If I were not in education, I think I would be doing something that allowed me to use my art background and create because that is something I have always enjoyed doing but never really taken a chance to just do it.

What's your idea of happiness?

Twitter has allowed me to be connected to people and ideas from all over that I would not have been able to access in any other way.

What are your favorite books and authors?

My favorite books are fiction books that are set in or close to North Carolina. I really enjoy most of the books by Clyde Edgerton. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is my all-time favorite though!
