Teacher of the Week: Sheila Sokolinsky


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Sheila Sokolinsky combines a love of technology with a love of teaching to make learning fun for students at Isaac Bear Early College High School in Wilmington.

In the numerous entries received nominating her for Teacher of the Week, she was described as helpful, funny, smart and cool!

She teaches Digital Integration and says she starts every day wanting her kids to realize they have potential, something she says they often don't realize they have.

Through the use of digital portfolios and blogs, among other things, Mrs. Sokolinsky sants her kids to do some self exploration using technology.

Students also give back to the teacher by sharing the stories and their challenges.

It's something Mrs. Sokolinsky says helps her think on a different level.

She is sending her kids off this summer with two pieces of advice: challenge yourself and believe in yourself!
