Nominated by:
Kayla Brady, High School Technology Integration Specialist "Michael is always willing to try new technology in his class to engage students. He is creative with his lessons, and his students are on the edge of their seats while he teaches. He actively teaches with his Promethean board and document camera. When I was in his class, we did a lesson with his clickers. Mr. Jimenez put a statement on the board and the student used the text option, on their clickers, to submit the converse or inverse of the sentence. After the clicker lesson, the students assignment was to take pictures around the school, upload the picture in Notability, circle and identify parallel, transversal, and perpendicular, then email their completed assignment to him."
