Our students are awesome - they even put on the hair net and gloves to help deliver lunches this week.
On Thursday Ms. Womack joined forces with Jamie Rutledge from Nearpod to observe LVISD teachers create lessons and use Nearpod with their students. It was a great way to see different grade levels utilize this fantastic program and integrate technology in the classroom. Mrs. Holden and Mrs. Baker showcased features that Jamie hadn't seen before!
