I spent an educational morning at Camanche High School last week. Thank you to Sarah DeMaranville, teacher-librarian, who invited me to learn how teachers and students are using technology. Sarah, Superintendent Thomas Parker and other administrators allowed me to visit classrooms, where it was inspirational to see how engaged students can be, and how excited the teachers are to try new techniques. Camanche administrators discussed with me the challenges and possibilities that school districts face when it comes to technology. Appropriate use of technology in classrooms is crucial to our state’s future, and my visit to Camanche underscored the importance of the work teachers and administrators do every day at schools in the district.
