Dawn Battaglia, a special education teacher at the Floyd Academy, was recently selected as a “Bright Light” by Suffolk ASSET (Association of Suffolk Supervisors for Educational Technologies) for her use of integrating innovative technology in her classroom. Battaglia was honored, along with several educators from Suffolk County, at Suffolk ASSET’s annual Bright Lights’ Luncheon held at the Timber Point Country Club.
As a faculty member of the Floyd Academy, Ms. Battaglia has embraced the use of Chromebooks in the classroom. She has immersed herself and grasped the concepts of how students can get the most effective use out of this technology.
“Dawn likes to try new things with her students and encourages them to achieve new heights,” said Tricia Interrante, Coordinator of Technology for the William Floyd School District. “She has completed a number of great projects with her students and readily shares the results and outcomes with her colleagues in an effort to provide the best education possible. She is truly deserving of this award.”
