      I graduated from Memphis State in 1983 with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught at Norris Road Elementary School in South Memphis.I took 21 hours of graduate classes on teaching science in the elementary school.

          I have since taken some classes and professional development in STEM. I taught STEM and Gifted/Talented for 3 years. I would like to become STEM certified because I think it is important that our future educators be inspired to incorporate STEM ans STEAM in their classes and philosophy of teachings.I am new to High School and the Teacher Academy

FIVE (5) Helpful Internet Hints for Parents: 

1. The hotspot from most phones can be used for internet access.  Please check the impact it will have on your data package.
2. Parents should call the phone or internet carrier in their areas and see if carriers will give them temporary internet access or internet access at a lowered price to allow students to complete their work. 
3. Family members may have internet packages that can be used with permission.  Please check the impact it will have on the data package.
4. Parents and students can use their personal laptops to access assigned school programs if the laptop has internet access.
5. Some community businesses may have free hotspots that allow the public to access their internet at no cost.

Note:  These are only helpful hints.  Please check for any requirements, permissions, or guidelines that must be followed.
