Bryant Elementary’s Technology Lab

June 11, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

My name is Jessica Sinkey Klein and I have been a teacher at Bryant Elementary since the fall of 1999. At Bryant I dedicated my first seven years as a second grade teacher, then worked three years in kindergarten and spent the last two years teaching first grade. I am extremely excited about my brand new position this year as a technology teacher. I will be transforming our school’s computer lab into Bryant Elementary’s Technology Lab. Students kindergarten through fifth grade will visit the lab during their enrichment rotation and learn technology skills based on the Common Core and so much more!
