Students at Mary Reid School in Potts Camp use the latest technology in the classroom.

A first for county schools • New computer for every child at Mary Reid

On Tuesday, Feb. 21, Mary Reid Elementary became the first school in the Marshall County School District to become a one-to-one school.  

Each student has access to his or her own computer, a Chromebook, while at school. Students are using the computers for research, to enrich learning, or to build on existing skills.  

The faculty and staff are excited about having access to technology for every student. Teachers have been learning the best practices for technology and creating  lesson plans for the effective use of technology in the classroom. Principal at Mary Reid is Leigh Anne Sanderson and instructional facilitator is Jean Newman.

“Placing technology in the hands of each of our students in kindergarten through third grade is definitely a step forward in preparing our students for the 21st century,” said Dr. Lela Hale, superintendent of education for the Marshall County School District.

“Using technology provides a whole new toolkit that enriches teaching and learning  in our classrooms. I appreciate the dedication of Mrs. Sanderson, Mrs. Newman, and the Mary Reid Elementary teachers and staff as they expand the minds of our children using such innovative methods.”
