Welcoming the 2018-2019 Schoology Ambassadors
Schoology Ambassadors are passionate, engaged, and knowledgeable leaders who are the voice of our community. We expect our Ambassadors to embody 6 traits: advocacy, activity, engagement, expertise, responsiveness, and leadership. But, in return, Ambassadors get some pretty awesome perks as well. Just to name a few, they will receive: the opportunity to elevate themselves as a thought leader, insight into new features and designs, exclusive speaking opportunities at events, and not to mention… awesome swag! These are just a few of the many amazing opportunities that come from joining this special program.
We choose Ambassadors each year based on their applications that are scored off of a rubric. Various members of the Schoology team thoroughly read through every essay and question responses, grading them all very carefully.
The reason we take the scoring process so seriously is because we receive an overwhelming amount of amazing applications, especially this year! We were absolutely thrilled with all of the submissions we received from various roles, districts, and states. But, no matter how much we loved it, it also made our job more difficult (but in the best way possible!)
Who Are The 2018-2019 Schoology Ambassadors?
So, I bet you’re wondering who were these amazing educators that were chosen for the 2018-2019 program year? Well, let’s just say, they’re from all over the place, all accomplishing different and amazing things! This year, accepted applicants ranged tremendously in terms of their role, institution size, and geographic location. We have Ambassadors who are Instructional Technologists, teachers, District Administrators, and more. These educators are also coming from over 30 states and representing all different sized institutions.
Well, look at this great group of people! And this is only a small portion of the Ambassadors! Keep reading to see a full list of all of the Ambassadors, new and returning.
Just in case you didn’t believe us when we said we have Ambassadors from all around the country, take a look at all those blue points, pretty awesome right? So, if you’re ever looking to connect with an Ambassador in your area, chances are, we have one or more nearby!
