This series spotlights the incredible work being done by amazing educators from all over the world, in a variety of roles. While classroom teachers are on the frontlines, directly impacting our students on a daily basis, educators wear many different hats and are in many different positions. Maria Esterline humbly agreed to share a bit about the work she is doing in Florida.
Maria is an Instructional Designer at the University of Florida. The following are the questions I pose for all of the spotlighted educators, and Maria’s answers.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the collaboration with the Professors in the process of developing online course. I love engaging in conversation with professors to learn more about their interests and connecting their interests to the development of the courses. I love weaving the professors’ passion with the execution of elevating the online course to the level where students feel a sense of connection to the professors.
