We’re proud to introduce our next class of Alpha Squirrels. They’re modern educators. They’re EdTech experts. They’re classroom innovators. Now, they’re Alpha Squirrels.
These EdTech professionals lead presentations and workshops around the globe, advocating for Squirrels and sharing their passion and resources for modern education. We saw many of them at ISTE this year, and you can find this growing community discussing and sharing ideas every month on our Twitter #SquirrelsChat.
The 11 newest members of our Alpha Squirrels program come from five states in the U.S., joining the ranks of more than 125 educators around the world.
