My name is Batoul Baydoun, and I am your child's Digital Literacy Teacher. This year marks my eleventh year in teaching. I'm a graduate of the University of Michigan where I was awarded a Master Degree in education with an Educational Technology major. In Michigan I had also earned a bachelor degree in elementary education, with a major in science and a minor in English as a Second Language. Michigan is my home state and where I had spent most of my life. There, I had taught for four years, and worked in the field of education for more than ten years prior to becoming an educator. After leaving Michigan, I taught science in a Houston public school. During the most recent Nine years, I have worked in Adams12 as a technology teacher and/or a digital literacy teacher, serving k-5 elementary students. I love what I do and I enjoy teaching and inspiring children and adults alike. Teaching technology, computer science, ESL, and general sciences are my passion. Today's Students are Digital Natives and they all have a natural curiosity about the world. I am here to support your child navigate the digital world, safely, responsibly and ethically to learn and become successful and leaders of tomorrow.
Outside my work, I am a wife and a mom of two children; an older daughter and a toddler boy. Over the past couple of years, I had taken some time off to be with my son at home to nurture him and give him all the support he needed. Now that he is two years old, I am back to teaching part time so I can balance my time with my family and still do what I love; Teaching. My family and I love to travel and visit places outside the U.S. Every year we make an international trip to visit, explore and learn about other cultures. When we are not traveling we spend time outdoors and getting together with family and friends.
I am very happy to serve the community giving back and sharing my knowledge and skills with others.
