Welcome to Mrs. Flint’s Computer Lab!
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to have the opportunity to teach students how to use technology and to use it as a tool for learning. 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! Students will have the opportunity to model Catholic values as they learn how to become a digital citizen. I will also be working collaboratively with our school’s librarian and classroom teachers to enhance and support grade level curriculum through the usage of technology in the classrooms and computer lab.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Let us learn to live with kindness, to love everyone, even when they do not love us. -Pope Francis
