Recent Accolades for EMS Director of Technology Sarah Rolle

In September, at the invitation of George Magdich, President of the New Jersey Educational Computing Cooperative (, EMS Technology Director Sarah Rolle was appointed as an advisor to this state-wide organization, joining a select group with eight other educators.

The NJECC is a not for profit organization that provides member school districts with a wide range of services and professional development to meet many of their educational technology needs.  In his invitation to Ms. Rolle, Mr. Magdich said, "you have the experience and are in the forefront of Ed Tech.  I think you would be a great addition to the group."  In addition to regular monthly meetings the NJECC advisor group also helps organize the annual conference in March.

In addition to this, Ms. Rolle was appointed as a team leader for a recent Google Teacher Academy, held in New York City on October 3, 2012.

The Google Teacher Academy is a free professional development experience designed to help K-12 educational leaders get the most from innovative technologies. Each Academy is an intensive, one-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google's products, learn about visionary instructional strategies, and receive resources to share with colleagues. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local regions and beyond.

Educators become Google Certified Teachers by attending Google Teacher Academies.  Ms. Rolle originally attended the GTA in 2007.
