Every child needs a champion, and every educator needs a cheerleader! Karie Frauenhoffer, a 7th Grade ELA & Personalized Learning Lead Teacher, from Kernersville, North Carolina, cheers, uplifts, and amplifies educators around the world. She discovered Flipgrid in April 2017 and has been a leader in the #FlipgridFever community as a Flipgrid Certified Educator, Student Voice Ambassador, and #GridGuide! In May 2018, we had the pleasure of meeting during the first Flipgrid Bus Tour. Her excitement, energy, and passion for creating unique experiences for her students is evident in the quest to learn and share with fellow educators.

⭐️MAGNIFICENT ⭐️ is the one word that enters Karie’s mind when she thinks of Flipgrid. We feel the same way about Karie!

Impact
πŸ’•
Flipgrid has allowed me to reach some of my most unreachable kids. It has provided an avenue of communication that students feel comfortable using and even if they aren't showing their faces-- they are sharing their voices and that's what is so important. πŸ’•

Advice
If at first you don't succeed... ask the #FlipgridFever community and try again. I can not tell you the number of times I have thought of an amazing Flipgrid-infused activity and it didn't go as my brain had dreamed it. I could have easily given up and just stopped trying with Flipgrid -- but, I reached out to this amazing FAMILY of educators and within a mere matter of MINUTES had several solutions to my troubles and an entire cheering squad to ensure I didn't lose the faith. It is so hard when you are first introducing a new tool to students or fellow staff members and their apathy towards newness and change can be disheartening but the #FlipgridFever community is a global force of positivity and support that you really can't go wrong! So, go... DO! Try! And don't worry... we've got you covered :)! πŸ™Œ
