Tina Calhoon hopes to one day become a technology facilitator which would allow her to help teachers incorporate technology into their classrooms and lesson plans.
As a fourth grade math and science teacher at Peake Elementary School in Arkadelphia for 11 years, Calhoon incorporates computer science, coding and robotics in her classroom.
“I have always been interested in technology and especially classroom technology,” Calhoon said. “Technology can help make the lessons in the classroom interactive and engaging for the students.
“I knew I wanted to get my master’s degree, but at that time I wasn’t necessarily interested in the programs that were offered until Henderson State announced their Master’s in Technology Leadership program. I immediately applied for graduate school and began taking classes. It was exactly what I had been waiting for.”
She received her master’s in Technology Leadership in 2015.
Calhoon, who graduated from Bismarck High School in 1996, received her B.S.E. in Early Childhood Education P-4 from Henderson in 2006 and her English as a Second Language certification in 2009. She is nearing completion of a program of study in Building Level Leadership, Principal Licensure from Henderson. She has also been taking classes for a cyber certificate from Louisiana Tech University. [Read more…] about Calhoon keen on classroom technology
