Director of Academic Technology
Archdiocese of Baltimore
When I first met Teresa Wilkins 10 years ago, she was the assistant principal and technology coordinator at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School. As Director of Educational Technology at Goucher College, I was so impressed with the opportunities she presented to her faculty and the understanding she had of teachers’ needs that I immediately asked her to join my program at the college. Throughout the years, Teri has never ceased to impress and amaze me with her knowledge, dedication, and ethics. Teri truly epitomizes the lifelong learner who inspires others through example. As an instructor, both in my program at Goucher and at the Archdiocese of Baltimore, her course evaluations prove that her students also recognize and greatly value Teri’s efforts to bring them the best educational experience possible. Teri is a great resource to the teachers she touches. My learning has been enriched by our teamwork and collegiality. What a fantastic resource she has been to me personally and the programs I direct.

It is my honor and privilege to recommend Teri Wilkins to any organization of educators. We invited Ms. Wilkins to Archbishop Curley High School as a motivational speaker. We asked her to “stoke the fires” of technology in our faculty, and this she did. Prepared with the tools of technology herself, she gave our faculty the incentive needed to further advance our use of technology in the classroom.
She addressed all, novice, intermediate and advanced user, encouraging each of us to continue to find new and exciting ways to use technology in the classroom. At the same time, she reminded us that we still need to have our feet firmly planted in the traditional forms of teaching just in case the technology does not quite work as we had planned. Our faculty commented most positively on Teri’s presentation and interaction with us.

Our Lady of Good Counsel High School:
I am very pleased to commend Teresa Wilkins, as both a professional educator and an outstandingly good person.
I have worked with Teri as a fellow high school teacher, and she has also been my instructor in a graduate level technology course. She is extremely knowledgeable, and she communicates her knowledge very well. Articulate, innovative, and dedicated, she has high expectations of her students, and she supports them in achieving those expectations. Her students – both adults and teens – love her!
As much as any teacher I know, Teri wants to grow in her own knowledge in order to be a better professional and a better person. She is curious, and she goes the extra mile to satisfy her curiosity. I believe that she is motivated by her love for her students and her love of learning. Accordingly, she is upbeat, energetic, patient, and kind. She brings so much to any educational endeavor or professional situation!

Teresa Wilkins is not only a friend and colleague but was also my teacher. Teri didn’t just stand in front of the classroom and read from a book. She taught from life experiences. She would share stories with her classes that would help us understand the material more clearly. She was a great asset to my high school and has been a great asset to me.
