Students participating in the Google Expedition for augmented reality had an awesome time!What is Google Expeditions AR?This year’s Pioneer Program is bringing you a sneak peek of Expeditions AR, an unreleased feature of Expeditions. With Expeditions AR, teachers and students map the physical classroom and place 3D objects like one of Michelangelo’s statues on the students’ desks so that everyone can examine the statue together at the same time. Anything from a strand of DNA to a whirling tornado can be brought into the classroom. Students will use our devices to get up close to see detail, or step back to get a sense of scale and point out new discoveries together. Teachers are able to highlight specific points of interest on the object and incorporate it to suit the lesson. -Google

Hi! I'm Natalie Brown. This is my twelfth year in education. I graduated from Appalachian State University twice, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters of Library Science. In 2011, I achieved my National Boards in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts/Early and Middle Childhood. I have since added an Instructional Technology Degree from East Carolina University.I was blessed to be able to attend Red Oak Elementary School when I was a child. It is so nice to be back home with an opportunity to teach in thesame community in which I was inspired to become a teacher. I love teaching because it gives me a chance to not only help to educate children but a chance to learn from their great young minds as well. I look forward to a great year.
Thanks to Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Price from the Harrison YMCA for organizing the creation of our new outdoor classroom. We had students, parents and staff from the Harrison YMCA work together to make this space amazing!
Hello! My name is Lindsey Parham and I'm excited to be your new 5th grade Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies teacher. This will be my sixth year teaching, my third teaching 5th grade. My undergraduate degree is from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. I then received my Master's degree from Liberty University in Professional Counseling. Currently, I am enrolled at East Carolina for an additional undergraduate degree. My life revolves around teaching and my two dogs, Floyd and Blossom. In my free time, I am a coffee enthusiast, dog trainer, and avid book reader. I look forward to working with you and your students. It's going to be a fantastic year!
