Biography

My name is Tamera Jones and I have been an employee for Katy ISD for seven years now. I don't complete these races very often, but when I do, my reason to race is for the Katy ISD Education Foundation. 

I have been able to see first hand the amazing ways teachers have been able to transform students' learning with the help of our teacher grants. Not only that, I was honored to be a grant recpient a fews ago. The grant gave my students access to technology that took their learning to a whole new level. With the use of our Navigators, students were able to begin using our Nspires beyond just simple calculations; they were able to engage in exploration activities while teaching other students. Thats right! This one grant allowed my students to be able to use the calculator to present their findings and conclusions to the rest of the class without having to get up from their seats--all in real time! No need for them to create and send a presentation and "hope" it was recieved. I simply gave them temporary control and they were able to use their calculators to wirelessly become the teacher! 

This technology is now a staple in our math classes across the district, but the grant allowed my students to be one of the first groups to take ownership of their own learning and be in the driver seat! I am truly thankful for the grant and the opportunity to try something new with my students, and I hope that we are able to continue to fund other teachers' dreams of transforming students learning on a daily basis!
