My name is Amy Poitra. I starting my teaching career in 2009. I began teaching at Benjamin E. Mays IB World School in 2015. I wear a few different hats here at Benmjamin E. Mays, including the academic support teacher, technology integration and iPad manager. I'm excited to learn more about how to use technology to personalize learning for my students. I'm most excited to continue encouraging students to do and be the best they can be. I have a passion for working toward a better world, I have a passion for giving my students the tools to be good people who care about themselves and others around them and who are confident and authentic to who they are. I'm a strong believer of kindness, we should strive to not only teach kindness, but more importantly to show kindness. As Gandhi states, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." I'm looking forward to a great year at Benjamin E. Mays IB World School.
