Susan Lohret
1st Grade Teacher
Cicero Elementary School
North Syracuse Central School District

Sue is a first grade teacher at Cicero Elementary in the North Syracuse Central School District.  She was hired in 2000. Teaching is her second career. She earned a business degree and worked in the private sector for a few years after college. She later earned her MS in Education at LeMoyne College. She has begun work on her CAS at SUNY Oswego as she wants to “gain a new perspective on education through the lens of an administrator.”

What are some of the innovative ways that Sue integrates technology into her curriculum?
Sue is very excited about the new iPad centers in all of the North Syracuse first grade classrooms this year. Her goal is to have students use the technology in a way that supports 21st century learning. “They need to use technology to innovate and create, to truly understand its capabilities; and it needs to be a part of their everyday experience and learning at school, not just a lab visit once a week. I have high expectations for my first graders and a firm belief that they can do anything if given the opportunity and support needed. They continue to provide evidence of this everyday.”

Sue has two major technology projects planned so far this year: Beyond daily integration of the new iPad centers in her room, Sue’s first graders complete an author study and create a sequel to one of the stories they study. [more...]
