Jim Hopton and Peggy Barger

PeggyjimblogWe teach at the Jefferson-Morgan Elementary School, K-6, in Southwestern PA and have a combined teaching experience of 63 years.  Peggy is the Technology Education Teacher and Jim is the Elementary Art Instructor.  We have often been accused of being attached at the hip when it comes to technology integration.  (See our joint picture).  Michael Golden from the Pennsylvania Department of Education describes us as "relentless" technology integrators. 

This year we look forward to continuing our school’s integration of technology across the curriculum especially with our newly acquired unitedstreaming and digital cameras.  We are also excited about video conferencing with our US Navy friend stationed in Italy with the NATO band.

Jim’s favorite teacher was Miss Cummings, fourth grade. She taught using project based learning long before it was even called "project based learning".

Peggy’s favorite teacher was Mr. English, her High School Geometry teacher.  His mentoring inspired Peggy to become a teacher.
