When I met Cyndie Sebourn, she was a retired teacher who was passionate about integrating literacy and technology. She loves language, and she loves the South. She wanted to showcase both in a storybook app that was different and make a difference. As I have gotten to know her, I realize what an invaluable vision Cyndie has – combining book apps with CCSS curriculum activities.
Her gift is the ability to read a book app and determine whether it has value from a curriculum perspective. And when she sees possibility, she creates gold with CCSS-aligned curriculum activities that link book apps with activities that are educational and fun for students and… for Cyndie.
Her vision is big. Her heart is even bigger.
