A total of 12 Harlandale ISD teachers earned special recognition for being top users in the nation of the software program Learning.com for the 2017-18 school year.  

The program, used in all elementary and middle schools, gives students the opportunity to learn and develop digital literacy skills such as keyboarding, word processing, computational thinking and coding.

To celebrate their achievement, Harlandale ISD Instructional Technology Facilitators Sara Dunn, Marguerite Lowak and Amy Montesdeoca hosted a special reception, with the help of Shelly Pulliam, at Central Office on Nov. 12.

“It was important for us to recognize these teachers because they are going above and beyond to teach students how to use digital literacy which will help prepare them for college and the workforce,” Dunn said.

All the teachers received a certificate as they enjoyed their delicious refreshments. Principals Sylvia Tovar, Dr. Traci Smith and Taleen Bloom were also in attendance to support their teachers.

The awards were classified into three categories:

Digital Literacy Champions (top 16 – 20 percent of Learning.com teachers nationwide): KMS Teacher Lesley Fielding, KMS Teacher Yvette Escobedo, Gilbert Elementary Teacher Claudia Garcia, Morrill Elementary Teacher Erika Jaramillo and Adams Elementary Teacher Kristen Guevara.

Digital Literacy Experts (top 6 – 15 percent of Learning.com teachers nationwide): LMS Teacher Wendy Maron, SWF Elementary Teacher Joshua Romero, Columbia Heights Elementary Teacher Christina Hernandez, KMS Teacher Caroline Macias and KMS Teacher Annie Zoll.

Digital Literacy Masters (top 5 percent of Learning.com teachers nationwide): HMS Teacher Tricia Kilbride and Carroll Bell Elementary Teacher Charlotte Kreusel.

Congratulations, teachers!
