Mrs. Herrin-Instructional Technology Facilitator
Thanks for visiting my web page. This is my 28th year in education, my first 16 years were spent in the classroom as a regular education teacher. Instructional Technology Facilitators in CCS get to work with staff and students to integrate technology within the learning environment.
My job is very fulfilling here at "The Rock". Our students in second through fifth grades are 1:1 with Macbook Air and Chromebook laptops, and K-1 students are now 1:1 with iPads. We love using our technology to access resources provided by our school like MyOn and PebbleGo as well as resources provided by our county such as Discovery Education and i-Ready.
In the spring of 2015 we were the fortunate winners of the Jimmy Johnson Foundations Champion Grant. Our 2nd through 5th Graders now enjoy computer programming with over 40 LEGO EV3 robots. During the 2015-16 school year we added Dash and Dot Robots by Wonderworks to our K-1 classrooms and all 800 plus students in our school became computer programmers. During the 2017/18 school year Mr. Barrows became the proud supervisor of a VEX Robotics club so our robotics program continues to grow.
Technology will never replace great teachers,
but technology in the hands of great teachers is transformational-George Couros
