Danna Pearsall has been teaching for 12 years and during this time, has metamorphosed into a tech-savvy, highly-motivated teacher and Kami Hero. Follow her on Twitter @MrsDPearsall I recently became a Kami Hero (basically a bonafide Kami user), and I’m excited to share just a few of the marvelous things it has to offer.  I don’t really even remember when or how I first ran into Kami, but I find myself using or recommending someone else use it at least a few times a week.  Below are just some of my favorite uses of…
