The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have. Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

Tracy Fortune
My name is Tracy Fortune and I have been teaching art to students of all ages for over 25 years. My career started in Canada, where I taught at both private and public schools in Alberta and British Columbia. My early teaching also included a year as an art teacher in Liberia, West Africa. I moved to the Washington State in 2003 and taught at Hudtloff Middle School in Lakewood, Washington for ten years. I had the privilege of being a key member of design team for a new Hudtloff Middle School building which won the 2013 International Interior Design Association “Design IN Public” Award. This past fall I transferred to Lakes High School where I teach Exploring Art and Ceramics.
