Rebecca Bustelos has been a teacher at Giffen Memorial Elementary School, in Albany, NY, for the last 15 years. With certifications in Elementary Education and Special Education from SUNY Geneseo (a concentration in math and computer science) and The University at Albany - SUNY, she has found ways to integrate media and project based learning to enhance the students’ education. Most recently, she has taught in a co-teach classroom, working with students with special needs, and is currently working with English Language Learners. Over the summer, she helps teach teachers how to use 1:1 computing in the classroom, helping students become an active part of the learning process by giving them access to digital resources.
