My name is Laurie Dukes. I have been at the American International School–Riyadh for 8 years, where I am currently working as Elementary Librarian. I am passionate about literacy, and I feel a great responsibility to help my students develop a lifelong love of reading and learning. These days, I am particularly interested in learning more about the impact of technology and how I can help students develop key information literacy skills that will enable them to be successful now and in the future.
I have a BA in History teaching from BYU, and a MA in Curriculum and Instruction with a Literacy emphasis from UT Arlington. I am excited to be pursuing this certificate in Educational Technology through the Coetail program and look forward to all the learning ahead!
