Vanessa Perez, Tech Integration & Library

I love being able to support all my awesome teachers. This year, I’m also serving Library Media Specialist and look forward to working with you as an instructional partner. We’ve got a lot of innovative ideas and planning going on, but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have even more inspiration:

One of our big initiatives this year is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math); the district is looking for full implementation by 2022.

It's part of the Community Strategic Plan, Goal Area 2: Curriculum and Instruction. Here is the PLC presentation: link.

I am a former middle school computer teacher (Digital Literacy, Web Design, and Multimedia) with a lot of passion. Here are some areas that are close to my heart:

  • Student choice, especially through flexible seating, authentic tasks, and project-based learning
  • Grading by standard, portfolio, or performance
  • Visual Thinking (to better understand student thought processes and decision-making)
  • Soft skills
  • Critical thinking
  • Helping students find the path that is right for them (not necessarily 4-year college right after high school graduation)
  • The use of technology as it makes sense in pursuit of learning – not just for it’s own sake
