August 2019 Spotlight – Robyn Reese, Learning Management System Administrator

This month’s spotlight shines on the 2019 winner of the Administrative and Professional Collaborative Exceptional Service and Initiative Award, Robyn Reese. As the Learning Management System Administrator at FSCJ, Robyn works each day to make sure that the College community maintains consistent and fair access to online courses in both Blackboard and Canvas. She loves the fact that her job gives her to opportunity to work on huge projects with big impacts on the College as a whole (like the Canvas roll-out) and that she also gets to meet and help individual faculty and students to solve problems that can make their College experience a better one!

Robyn holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Art History from the University of Florida. She taught art AND history for seven years at Darnell-Cookman School of the Medical Arts, a local dedicated magnet school. As a classroom teacher, she began to recognize the benefits of using technology to supplement excellent teaching practices, and this became her secondary professional passion. After completing three years as Testing, Activities and Recruitment Director at Darnell-Cookman, she came to FSCJ as an Educational Technology Specialist in the fall of 2016.

In her free time, Robyn is an advanced yoga practitioner, an enthusiastic gardener and a curator of pictures of her cat (just ask her). She loves to travel with family and friends and to convince them to visit art museums.
