Welcome to PVES Computer Lab with Ms. Durham!
My name is Sarah Durham. This is my first year teaching at Powdersville Elementary School, however, this is not my first time teaching and working with kids. I got my start as a teacher when I was 13 as the assistant Sunday school teacher at my local church. Since then, I have worked at a daycare teaching a mixed age class of 2 years and older. I have also volunteered at my church's summer camp, Camp Agape, for the past 11 years. There, I've worked with kids ranging from 5 to 18 in many different roles.
I'm a two time graduate of Tri-County Technical College with Associate degrees in Accounting and Early Childhood Development. While at Tri-County Technical College, I had the opportunity to participate in observational labs at multiple locations. I also had the pleasure of student teaching in a Kindergarten class at Six Mile Elementary over the course of my last 2 semesters. Overall, I have been working with and teaching kids for 14 years now in one way or another. I wouldn't change a second of the time I have spent working with those children, and I can't wait to have the opportunity to work with yours.
Over the course of the school year, I hope to take your kids on a journey through the world of technology. There are constantly more new and exciting things entering the world of technology. It is my job to help prepare your kids to enter that world with at least a basic understanding of how to navigate their way through all that technology in a safe and positive way. I hope to create fun and exciting opportunities for your child to learn about technology through a collaborative and engaging learning environment.
Parents, please CLICK HERE to view our class website. I will be posting newsletters periodically to let you know about upcoming lesson topics, activities, and competitions we will have throughout the school year. I will also be posting photos of your child hard at work in computer lab (*I will only do so if I have permission to post photos of your child).
