About Ms. Lirenman

My name is Karen Lirenman and I am a primary teacher with  Surrey Schools, in British Columbia, Canada.  I began my teaching career in 1992 and in that time I've taught Kindergarten, Grade One, Kindergarten/Grade One Combined, Grade One/Grade Two Combined, and ESL K-7.  I am an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Certified Teacher, a DEN Star, and the recipient of the 2013 ISTE Kay L. Bitter Award for innovation in PK-2 teaching.   In my classroom I connect my students globally through tools such as blogs, video conferencing, and Twitter.  I love to provide my students with choice in how they learn, show, and share their knowledge.  I love to present regularly, sharing my love of innovative uses of technology and the power of the little people.
