The district, since I have been the Media Specialist, has made great strides to improve the use of differentiated instruction. The iPads are just a piece in the puzzle! Student achievement and success are a big focus for our district and we are always researching and working towards improvement. The inservices provided for teachers prior to school that run in the Edcamp style are amazing! I learn so much towards implementing lessons.
I love my job! Each day in the ESMS Learning Commons is different! Every day I am challenged to learn more and more about different devices and technology. My class challenges me each day! The students are learning new strategies and will teach those to other students and sometimes even to me! There is not one way to do things anymore...lots of different strategies and techniques will get us to an answer. Problem-solving and critical thinking skills are critical to our success of both teachers and students. Again, I LOVE MY JOB!
A positive attitude and goals are what I am striving for this year! Come by and see me in the Learning Commons!
