Welcome to Mrs. Geek Chic.com! I’m Larissa Aradj, a lot geek, a little chic /ʃiːk/ and a French Immersion teacher by profession, hence the name Mrs. Geek Chic! I live, work and play in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
I’m not new to blogging, however, I’ve changed my audience this time. I’ve been running and maintaining school-wide and classroom blogs since 2007, still in education, yes, but this teacher blog is a new adventure for me.
I love creating and sharing teaching resources!! As an FSL/French Immersion Teacher I often struggle to find good, quality resources in French. I hope to help make life easier for teachers who aren’t so tech savvy and to motivate them to try new EdTech (and other!) teaching ideas. Getting started with technology is the hardest part, in hopes my “EdTech du jour” tips, tricks, ideas & resources will inspire you and bring out your own inner geek.
I currently teach Health & Physical Education and Media Literacy in French at a downtown Toronto school. I am also a Google Certified Educator, Innovator #TOR16 , Trainer and Digital Lead Learner for the Toronto District School Board.
Please keep in touch, leave comments and success stories. I’d love to hear from you!
