Welcome to Mrs. Flint’s Computer Lab!
I am excited to have the opportunity to teach students about and how to use technology during the 2018-2019 school year. Prior to teaching technology, I taught fourth grade for eleven years here at VCES. As the Technology Specialist, I am looking forward to working with students in grades K-5 and to help develop and gain important 21st century technology skills such as word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, internet research, designing, and coding. Lessons will emphasize the role students play as digital learners and how they contribute to society using technology to collaborate, share and find information, problem solve, design and create, and much more! I will also work collaboratively with our school’s librarian and classroom teachers to enhance and support grade level curriculum through the usage of technology in the classrooms.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
