Throughout the course of her twenty years of teaching, Darcy Salvadore has taught all levels of high school English. Currently, she teaches at Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California. She puts her students in the driver’s seat of their education and views herself as a facilitator of learning rather than a dispenser of information. She is involved in instructional leadership on her campus and in her district. Darcy is part of the original cohort of Technology Lead Teachers and she presents on using social media as an instructional tool, among other technology based topics, at her school, district, and beyond. Darcy uses KQED Teach resources in her classroom to build social and media literacy, improve reading and listening skills, and to help her students become creators of media rather than consumers.
