This site is the ITMA portfolio of Dana Huff.
I am a full-time teacher at Worcester Academy, a private preparatory school for grades 6-12 and postgraduates in Worcester, MA. I am married and mother of three: Sarah, Maggie, and Dylan. Our family lives in Worcester, MA. with our cat Bellatrix.
I began the Virginia Tech ITMA program in August 2008 and graduated in December 2010. One of my goals in completing this degree was to help other teachers learn how to integrate technology into their classrooms.
I worked for three years as a technology integration specialist before returning to teaching English full time and chairing the English department at Worcester Academy.
My interests include reading and literature, integrating technology into education, digital storytelling, special needs education, podcasts and digital audio, Webquests and Website design, blogging with WordPress, wikis, Web 2.0 applications, open source software, Apple MacBooks and other Apple products, Creative Commons, assessment in education, and professional development.
