My name is Sharon Davison and I have the pleasure of being a Kindergarten teacher in Vermont. I have been teaching for 25 + years. During my teaching career I have worked with 1st through 4th grade. I am now embarking on a new journey… Kindergarten! I value collaboration and innovation. The world is changing so fast and the tools that are available to support, enhance and engage from a teaching view are endless. I look forward to making connections with others who are also interested in making a difference in how children learn. I believe in innovation and collaboration. I feel that as a teacher of young children I have a unique opportunity to help promote the idea of becoming a safe and responsible digital citizen in the world. I have created many blogs and wikis for this very purpose.
