About Me

My name is Dorene Bates. I work at the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County District Office in North Carolina as an Instructional Technologist. I have my Master's Degree in Instructional Technology from Appalachian State University.

I am a SMART Exemplary Educator and SMART Certified Lesson  Developer. In 2010, I became a Glogster EDU Ambassador. I was honored recently to be accepted as one of the first Edmodo Certified Trainers. 

I like to travel, read, knit, and actively learn on my iPad. One of my most favorite things to do is to take a Disney Cruise, or go for a ride with my husband on his Harley. 

I am fortunate to be in a job that requires me to always be learning and allows me the time to investigate and try new things.
