Welcome to Mrs. Nimmo's Technology Class:
Thanks for stopping by the Washington Elementary Technology page. This page will give you information on what's going on in our computer lab, testing dates, and great websites for your kids to visit from home.
About Mrs. Nimmo: I have a wonderful husband and two great kids. I have lived in Fremont County most of my life. Washington has been my "home" for 15 years. I truly feel that it is the best school around. We have such great expectations for our students. I love to see former students out and about in town and see their successes.
My favorite thing about teaching technology is that I get to teach students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. I love seeing the growth that the students show every year. I also learn so much from them.
About the Class: Students at Washington build on their technology skills year after year. We utilize Microsoft Office programs to build on skills that students learn in the classrooms. As the students become more technologically advanced, I find myself searching and learning new skills to challenge the students. We recently added MovieMaker to our 5th grade curriculum to build personal movies. We also complete our Star Reading and Star Math testing in September, December and April during technology class.
Building Technology:Classroom teachers utilize technology in their classrooms as well. We have three NEO2 Carts that enable students to word process, take Accelerated Math and Reading tests as well as many other hands on skills on the keyboards. We also have have two Mimio "white board" systems that teachers use to allow students interaction with the computer in the classroom.
