Teachers picked for honor

Krista Petrick and Dr. Tricia Jones
Anderson County School’s Innovation Academy, which uses an online learning curriculum called Odysseyware, was asked to be featured in Odysseyware’s new promotional video in September. ACOLA students T.J. Stephens and Ravyn Plamp and staff members Krista Petrick, Ginger Sills, and Dr. Tricia Jones all interviewed with the Odysseyware marketing team to help create the promotional video. To show their appreciation, the Odysseyware team invited Krista Petrick and Dr. Tricia Jones to represent Anderson County Schools and Odysseyware at the 2018 iNacol Symposium and to an Odysseyware event in Nashville. The symposium invited thousands of North American educators to collaborate and learn about new innovative technology, policies, and programs that appeal to the 21st-century student. Odysseyware also held a promotional event during the week of the symposium, and Dr. Jones and Mrs. Petrick were invited to showcase how Odysseyware is being used in Anderson County Schools to a variety of schools across the nation that are interested in innovative school programs. The symposium and promotional event were a success, and Anderson County Schools continues to be a leader in Tennessee’s virtual and technological education.
