Shapes in the Environment By Mary Courtney

About the Author

Mary Courtney I was born and raised in the small town of Westport, Connecticut. Growing up on the east coast I came to love beaches and cities. I grew up only about fifty minutes from New York City and to this day it still feels like home. By the time I was ready to go off to college I decided to pack up and move to the middle of the country to Indiana where I attended IU. At IU I majored in elementary education and I really decided to pursue my passion for teaching. When I was at college I decided to become a teacher for several reasons. Some of these reasons included my love for children, spreading knowledge, and having fun! More over, I believe that in this day in age technology is a vital element to not only learning but also to society. Technology tools for the classroom, like iBooks Author, will be able to enhance classrooms across the world.
