S.T.A.T. Teacher, Rodgers Forge Elementary
As a S.T.A.T. Teacher, I am able to work with students and teachers every single day and continue to be amazed at the work that our students and teachers engage in on a regular basis. Hosting the Night of Innovation at Rodgers Forge allowed for members of our community to see the how hard our teachers and kids work and gave them an opportunity to see what I get to see every day. They were able to witness how teaching and learning is transforming in order to better meet the needs of each individual child in our building.
Almost 400 visitors walked through the hallways and interacted with students and staff members during the evening. Sixty-five of our incredible students volunteered their time to showcase digital products to show what S.T.A.T. is really all about.
Students were able to communicate how they now have a choice in their learning and visitors explored student centered learning environments and learned more about how technology is used daily to enhance instruction in meaningful ways. The night was filled with so much positive energy and excitement as parents asked questions about digital tools and learned about digital citizenship from our Superheroes (see below)!
The evening, co-hosted by Discovery Education, showcased the valuable partnership Discovery Education has had this year with Baltimore County Public Schools. It truly was an exciting night and one that I couldn't be more proud to be a part of!
