Hi! My name is Megan Sessa and this is my technology portfolio.  These pages chronicle my journey through Michigan State University’s Master of Arts in Educational Technology (MAET) program in Galway, Ireland.

I come to teaching with a sustained passion for working with students and children.  Although I have always considered teaching, I originally began college as a declared Communicative Sciences and Disorders major.

However, after taking my first “Intro to CSD” course and realizing that this wasn’t the career for me, I decided a new life direction was in order.  Because my ultimate goal was to work with kids in schools, I thought there was no better way to make a difference than to become a teacher.

I graduated magna cum laude from Michigan State University in 2012, more specifically the College of Arts and Letters, with a bachelor’s degree in English, endorsed by the Honors College at MSU.  I also graduated with a minor in psychology from Michigan State’s College of Social Science.

In the fall of 2012 I began my internship as a student teacher in Southeast Michigan, an experience supported by Michigan State’s College of Education.  Two weeks after completing my year long internship with Walled Lake Central High School, I was offered a classroom teaching position at Weatherford High School, in Weatherford, TX.

I taught English II and III in Weatherford for two years before moving to the Carrollton-Farmers Branch school district to teach Honors English 1, Global Experience English and Diploma English 3 at Ranchview High School, an International Baccalaureate World School.

I am currently in pursuit of my master’s degree in Educational Technology and wish to later pursue a PhD in Educational Psychology.  I aim to maintain a life-long relationship with the educational system in some capacity, whether it be through teaching, research or policy making.

This I Believe…

The following video was designed to show my thoughts on teaching, technology and how the two come together – now and in the future.
