Welcome, Cheryl Arnett, to KinectEducation! Wife, Grandmother, World-Class Educator

It makes no difference where you’re from; Cheryl Arnett embodies the attributes of your ideal, world-class elementary teacher. An inspiration for all, her nineteen years of teaching experience at Sunset Elementary in Craig, Colorado qualify her as one of the world’s best.

In case an award is needed to backup her credentials, she has those, too.

Cheryl’s passion and abilities as an educator revealed themselves when she and her partner from Beirut, Lebanon won two awards at Microsoft’s 2010 Innovative Educator Forum. Her ability to relate to people on a personal level helped establish partnerships with classrooms around the world, earning her the ePals Ambassador award in 2010. Cheryl was also a coach in Microsoft’s 2011 Partners in Learning Global Forum in Washington, DC.

Projects Cheryl is currently working on? Cheryl is also a member of Microsoft’s amazing Kinect in Education team and spent this last semester using the Kinect in her classroom while developing outstanding Kinect activities. Cheryl also serves as an Advisory Board Member on the Bridges of Peace and Hope, where people work “together to promote respect, understanding, and communication” around the world.

On a personal level, Cheryl has served as a great source of inspiration for me. As KinectEducation has evolved, it became clear that what was originally anticipated and sought after was becoming reality.  We’re doing something much, much bigger than ourselves here, and Cheryl shares this same vision. We need more people like Cheryl on board to carry this out effectively.

Most importantly, Cheryl is a wife, mother, and grandmother. Cheryl would never say it about herself, but she’s kind of a big deal. 🙂
