Mission Statement

“The advent of information technology in the classrooms of Medford schools is an opportunity for professional growth for teachers and an opportunity for real world experiences for our students. Through the guidance of the Teacher Learning Center workshops and classroom support, I hope to establish global perspectives to teacher-developed curriculum that will allow students of varying learning styles to investigate open-ended questions, evaluate information, analyze data, and draw conclusions that may be applied to other learning situations. Classroom activities based on the core curriculum and in alignment with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks will become authentic learning experiences by integrating the technology competencies required in the workplace today and for the future.”
