Mrs. Jami Wilkinson
Hello, I am Jami Wilkinson and I am the 5th grade Technology Teacher. I earned my Bachelors Degree from Stephen F. Austin State University and I am currently working on a Masters of Educational Technology Leadership from Texas A&M Commerce. This is my second year to teach Technology, but I have been in the district since 2004 as a teacher's aide and a library aide in the Wills Point School District.
It is an exciting time to be an educator with so many resources available to provide a well rounded educational experience that will prepare students for the future. Educational technology is an integral part of 21st-century education that promotes a successful learning environment. Technology has changed exponentially throughout the latter part of the 20th century and I am fortunate to have grown with technology where I belong to both worlds, the century where technology was just being introduced into schools and the current century where technology is in everything.
“Pedagogy is the driver, technology is the accelerator.” --Unknown
This quote accurately describes a successful learning environment where learning is the vehicle my students are driving by taking ownership of learning when utilizing the technological resources available that will accelerate their learning and mastery of a concept. Educators are the facilitators that provide the guidance toward their educational destination.
My goal is for my students to be engaged while learning skills that will carry throughout their lives.
