1st Grade Teacher, Joppa View Elementary
Being a first grade teacher in a lighthouse school has been a rollercoaster of excitement and opportunities. Being a first grade teacher in a lighthouse school AND a graduate student in an Educational Technology program has literally turned my teaching world upside down.
As I am studying the transformation of education in my graduate program at Loyola, I am constantly being introduced to SO many new tools and resources that are helping me create a 21st century learning environment. I feel so fortunate to be in a Lighthouse School where I actually have the devices required to reach this new level of learning. Not only do I get to learn about the newest tech tools and teaching methods…I get to practice them in my own classroom!
This process and experience is allowing me to weave through the vast amount of available tools and choose ones that are appropriate for my students and my lessons. As I find success with certain web tools, I am highlighting them on my website while I continue through my graduate program. I’d like to share my successes with other teachers and hopefully give them ideas on how to use these tools in their own classrooms. Please visit my site if you’re interested, and happy teaching!
