Ms. Pereida first at Grantham to complete Level Up Innovation certification
Grantham Academy is committed to innovation in the classroom and understands the impact of technology on teaching, learning, and behavior in schools.
By pursuing and continuing education in the field of instructional technology, teachers can broaden the scope of their impact on students beyond their subject-level expertise. Using new technology and techniques for delivering and involving their students in the curriculum, they are able to reach students like never before. The Level Up badging Program and Innovate Academy was designed to create a structured framework for all technology professional development, with a focus on encouraging innovative classroom instruction. This program centers around building the capacity of educators in competencies deemed critical to developing future ready skills in the digital age. These competencies include building an innovative environment, learner engagement, digital citizenship and leadership, using digital resources, and fostering collaboration.
Grantham Academy wants to recognize teachers in pursuit of these goals. Today we honor our first teacher to complete her certification in this program at our campus. Norma Pereida completed her 6 hour course this week and was presented with a set of Chromebooks to support her efforts at innovation in her classroom. She has already been recognized as a top performer in the district for English, Language Art, and Reading in Middle School and we are proud to support her ongoing efforts with exemplary student performance. Excellent work Ms. Pereida! #AldineInnovates
