I have been teaching fourth grade at Leola Elementary School for the past six years. The saying is true, time really does fly when you are having fun! I am also the technology "go to girl" for half of my building. My colleague and fellow Keystone, Rick Jones, is the "go to guy" for the other half of the building.
The thing I look forward to the most this year is using the electronic whiteboard and handhelds with my class and seeing the excitement for learning they get from using such wonderful tools! I also can’t wait to start using United Streaming!
I was fortunate enough to have a lot of wonderful and inspiring teachers in my life. I would have to say that two teachers stick out in my mind the most. The first one is Mr. Skinner. He was my tenth grade English teacher and taught me to believe in myself and made me want to be a teacher. The second one is Dr. Donald Tshudy. He was an elementary education professor when I attended college. He was always so excited about being a teacher and took a special interest in my education.
