LeMoyne Elementary first grade teacher Sarah Scott, ENL teacher Kristina Crehan and math coach Marianne Oliver have received a $3,306 grant from the Terra Science & Education Foundation to help expand access to technology in their classrooms and improve education for Multiple Language Learners.
 
The grant will allow the school to purchase six iPads and a document camera for their classrooms, with the goal of enhancing their instruction as well as student learning.
 
“We have seen some improvement in the students' abilities with the foundational math skills that we have been addressing during our first module of instruction,” Ms. Scott explained. “We are hoping that once we obtain the technology funded by the grant, we will be able to see increased levels of student success.”
 
Ms. Scott and Ms. Crehan have started co-teaching and Ms. Oliver has been observing and providing them with feedback. The teachers hope to collect data throughout the school year to monitor the impact that co-teaching using integrated technology has on student learning.
 
Congratulations to these teachers for their dedication and commitment to improving instruction for their students!
