About

Hello world!

My name is Margareta Tripsa (I go by Margo Tripsa). I have been teaching for over a decade. Education has helped me embark on extraordinary journeys. Via Visiting International Faculty (VIF), a leading exchange program for teachers, I launched my career as an international educator. I have taught on 3 continents so far: Europe (Romania), North America (Charlotte, North Carolina), and Asia (Qatar). Currently, I work as the Instructional Technology Coach at an international school (American curriculum) in Qatar, Middle East. I have been enjoying the experience of teaching internationally tremendously!

I hold a MA degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) earned in the United States. Currently, I am enrolled in an Education Specialist program in Instructional Technology at Kennesaw State University, Georgia, U.S. Teaching is truly my passion. I really believe that students need to develop global awareness and possess a variety of skills in order to succeed in the 21st century. Therefore, teachers have the big responsibility to keep up with the quick societal shifts. I am very proud for being conferred the 2013 Global Educator Award. I knew teaching was my true calling the moment I started playing school as a child. I have a passion for outdoor activities, instructional technology; I love the sun, and the beach.

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you’ll find here instructional resources that will truly enrich your instruction.

I also hope that my posts will always find you in great health and spirits!

Regards,
Margo Tripsa

    You are creating a good resource for many teachers and parents who need advise and guidance on the digital tools that could be very useful in teaching. Love what you are doing. Keep it going.
