"As a senior, digital portfolios have given me an easier way to access my personal and educational information when it comes to applying to scholarships and universities...Everything is stored in the same place: my resume, recommendation letters, and skills. Having the opportunity to present in front of principals, teachers, and staff from schools all over the United States has been a remarkable experience. I was able to share my experiences, learn about different teaching strategies, and give feedback. I felt like a voice for students to help transform K-12 education."Anelys Romero Herrera, senior at SLHS
"The new digital portfolio has provided me with new tools for organization and reflection,” Garcia, an SLHS junior, said. “It was a delight to present and be part of a learning process and make new connections."
