Welcome back to school Alvah Scott Elementary students! As we head into another phase of the pandemic, we are carefully trying to get back to a more traditional school year. I'm so happy that I can see the students each day, and that we are doing more in-person learning. I hope that we can respect each other whether students decide to wear a mask or not, and that we can be kind to each other and only come to school if you are feeling healthy.
Getting back to the topic at hand, technology.... At our school, we have iPads for Grades Pre-K and First Grade. We have Dell Chrome books for grades 2 through 6. We have several programs such as ConnectED, Achieve 3000, IXL, iReady, GoMath and SmartyAnts. We also have coding programs such as Tynker, Scratch and CS First for the upper grades. We offer newscasts using Vimeo and continue to upgrade our video club equipment. We are also introducing Canva which is a free program for educators and this helps us to design websites, brochures, videos and much more.
Just a little bit about me, I am originally from Pennsylvania and have many years in education, and even more in the computer field. In my spare time I like to unwind with a nice walk, I enjoy yoga and I also like to jump in the ocean on a hot day. I love spending time with my family, both here in Hawaii and on the East Coast! And my newest love is a 12 lb. puppy that I love to take on walks each day. Thanks for checking out my page, see you soon!!!
