kneeWho is Maria Knee? 

She is “The Kinderkids” Classroom Teacher! 

Maria is an exemplary, model educator who uses technology to enrich the lives of each of her students. 

“From using digital microscopes with her primary aged students to investigate the pond in her classroom to capture “real life” images of the creatures that live there, to the blog that her class has developed which allows her students to connect with worldwide buddies, Maria’s students’ lives are enriched by the experiences she consistently shares with them and their families.” 

Maria is a caring individual, a tireless champion for helping others understand the power that technology has in helping kids to grow as learners. 

Maria is an inspiration to all of us!
