Jen Brittain, a kindergarten teacher at Forest Hill Elementary School, contributed to an article in “Parents Magazine” recently. The 23 year Burke County Public Schools employee was approached to share her knowledge on how she utilizes technology in her classroom. In the article she talks about her usage of tablets for instruction and apps that can track individual progress, which Brittain can then use to shape her instruction. She describes how parents can check on their child’s progress at home as well and said, “That’s a great connection between home and school. "I love seeing students make connections with the real world through the use of technology and through our standard course of study." Forest Hill Principal Sara LeCroy said, “Mrs. Brittain is a leader in instruction and technology in our school and our district. She is always looking for new ways to integrate technology into student learning."
