Mrs. Janice Ricks, ITF
Greetings, I am Janice Pillmon Ricks, wife, mother, educator and advocate. I am the Instructional Technology Facilitator for Bertie Early College High School, in Windsor, NC. I grew up in Bertie County and graduated from Bertie High School; ironically, Bertie is the same school district that I serve today. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in History from Elizabeth City State University. I received a Juris Doctorate degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law in Durham NC. I also received a Master of School Administration degree from Elizabeth City State University.
As a Technology Facilitator, I enjoy working with teachers, students, and administrators. I am an advocate for the use of Google Apps for Education, the "Flipped" classroom model, Schoology as a LMS and Chromebooks for students. I currently work in a one-to-one Chromebook environment and work with teachers to help them integrate technology into their classroom curriculum. Technology can only enhance what the teachers are already doing in the classroom.
I wanted this webpage to be a resource for both teachers and students. This website is your "one-stop-shop" for technology integration. CAUTION: this site is under construction, be patient as I continue to build.
Thank you for visiting my page.
