About Laura Davis, Local Digital Innovator
Davis has a diverse teaching background that has afforded her many opportunities to grow and connect with students. At Findlay High School, she teaches freshman history, freshman mentorship, co-teacher algebra and is a member of the RTL team. Davis has seen how teaching through technology has changed her students' motivation and connectedness. She loves learning with her students and challenges herself as much as she challenges them. The best parts of Davis' job are the relationships she has built with her students throughout her teaching career. One of her greatest joys is seeing her students succeed. Davis' favorite PBS LearningMedia resource is a primary source from the Library of Congress titled, The Spanish-American War: The United States Becomes a World Power http://wbgu.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/758e40fd-5b52-48db-ac6a-fcf25a004211/the-spanish-american-war-the-united-states-becomes-a-world-power/
