Darcy Esparza has been teaching middle school math in Texas for 10 years. She has been using technology both in and out of the classroom for communication with parents/students as well as making her lessons more current and captivating.
All types of learners enjoy using online games and videos to help build their math knowledge.
With the use of video responses, students can answer questions without the embarrassment of responding in class. Darcy likes to use journeys to “flip” her classroom. Students love doing homework on their phones/devices instead of another ‘worksheet’.
Darcy has shared her positive Recap experiences with her staff, her district colleagues, and a state STEM conference. She also uses social media to provide information about Recap to other teachers.
