Kimberly Mattina is a Certified Teacher who is a Technology Integration Coach, and a Social Media Adviser at the William Davies Middle School in Mays Landing, New Jersey.
Kimberly’s blog posts range from her experiences using technology, new features of a tool, how to complete a task, follow up posts, and Tech Tip Tuesdays. However, most of her posts are about her teaching experiences while implementing technology into the classroom. In a typical blog post, she briefly describes the lesson, the technology tool(s) being used, the challenges and/or technical difficulties, a reflection, and pictures during the lesson. Every Tuesday, she posts new and interesting tech tips, called “Tech Tip Tuesdays” along with a “How To” guide where the audience can follow simple directions to complete a task.
She truly enjoys sharing her experiences with her audience. To her, it is important to be able to share, and help others using technology.
I feel I am “paying it forward” by contributing to the technology community because, at times, I will reach out to the community for guidance as well. Technology is my passion and I am fortunate to have a career that allows me to teach, learn, and experiment with cutting edge technology tools.

#9 Andrea Vahl
Andrea is the co-author of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies and was the Community Manager for Social Media Examiner for over 2 years. She uses her Improv comedy skills to blog as a slightly cranky character, Grandma Mary – Social Media Edutainer.
I truly believe that standing out and being different has been the key to my success. I always make sure I’m delivering valuable information with the tutorials and a little fun and inspiration. Grandma’s message is “If Grandma Mary can do it, then you can do it too.” I think that relates not only to marketing your business using social media but bringing your unique gift into the world.
