Division: Accomack County Public Schools
Position: Algebra I, algebra II, trigonometry, and algebra functions teacher at Arcadia High School
What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: During the pandemic, and as we were preparing for our return to learn plan, we were noticing that we did not have a consistent way to communicate with our students. Baiju Nambiarvettil worked with a team of developers to create an app specific to Arcadia High School. Not only did it allow us to communicate with our students and staff in a streamlined process, we have also been able to use the app to facilitate teacher/student communication, class scheduling, guidance appointments, and push notifications. We have over 700 subscribers (teachers, staff, and students) using our ARCADIA HS app.
