Ms. Liz Hood
I am thrilled to be the media specialist at Oakdale Elementary!
My educational background is quite eclectic. I received my Master's of Educational Technology from the University of British Columbia, Canada. I hold a Master's in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina, USA; a Master's in Spanish from the University of Virginia, USA; and a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from Mary Washington College, US.
I am originally from Virginia; during my teaching career I have taught in Virginia, New Jersey, North Carolina and South Carolina. While most of my instructional experience has been with K-12 students, I have also taught adults in a variety of settings from college Spanish and Integrated Technology courses to English as a Second Language classes. I have immensely enjoyed each educational experience, as each one has afforded me a learning opportunity. I am passionate and enthusiastic about my fields of interest and I am dedicated to best practice education. I am enthralled with technology integration and the opportunities it affords us to reach people in a variety of ways and in multiple settings.
