Ingrid I. Iglesias is a fifth and sixth grade math and gifted science teacher at Fulton Academy of Science and Technology. The parent who nominated Ms. Iglesias praises her for using cutting edge technology and best practices to engage students and motivate them in the classroom.
“Ms. Iglesias goes above and beyond the regular duties of a teacher to truly make an impact on the school and students. She inspires students to learn and finds creative ways to make the material accessible to the students, staying up-to-date with best practices and applying for grants to help enhance instruction and the class environment,” says the FAST parent who nominated Ms. Iglesias. “She has the respect and admiration of the students and serves as a role model for them. Ms. Iglesias always has the best interests of her students in mind. She treats them and in a fair and caring way.
She constantly looks for different tools and technology to make the class more fun and accessible even when the students have been virtual half of the year. Ms. Iglesias uses unique platforms to make classes more fun and interactive. She created lab sessions that allowed students learning at home to look through a microscope in the same way as face-to-face students. She also received a grant for digital microscopes for her and the school’s other science teacher. The microscopes along with lab kits allowed Ms. Iglesias to teach virtually in a more fun and effective way.”
