Mrs. Higgins

My name is Erin Higgins and I am the Hempstead Media Speialist.  I am a 29 year veteran of the East Ramapo Central School District.  In that time I have held various positions:

    • Classroom teacher (Hempstead, grades 1,2,4,5), with a focus on:
      • Technology integration
      • Blended learning
      • Differentiated instruction
      • Engage NY modules
      • Project Based Learning
      • STEAM
    • Instructional Technology Coordinator (k-12 district wide)
    • Managed school website & web based user accounts
    • Lead professional development inservice courses for ERCSD teachers bringing technology into the classrooms and integrating it into the curriculum

My goal this year, through our new Media Center, is to bring all things Google to the forefront of Hempstead's teaching and learning process.  I want to encourage creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.  We are using GAFE ( Google Apps for Education) in many ways.  Please speak with your child about it.  Ask questions at home.
