Welcome to my site! My name is Natasha J. Malone, and I am a 5th grade classroom teacher (self contained) at James K. Polk Elementary in Alexandria, Virginia. I have been a part of the Polk family since 2012.
While I have had the pleasure to teach in different countries, by far this has been my best experience! Teaching at Polk has afforded me the opportunity to grow as a "professional learner!" Through my interactions with students I have truly learned the value of being a "life long learner." My students have aided in this process by exposing me to their cultures, languages, and sharing their previous experiences in education. As I learned to navigate through the challenges, I realized that technology is sure to yield one result; and that is student engagement!
This year in our district, several schools received one to one Google Chromebooks in support of 21st century learning. Using Weebly, I have captured a snapshot of students demonstrating knowledge and mastery of skills covered in various subjects with the use of technology. Enjoy!
