Welcome to Ms Quintano's Technology Class
Hello Parents and Students,
Welcome to My Page, let me introduce myself. I am Ms. Quintano, your child's Technology teacher. I have been teaching in District for the past 22 years and have held many diverse roles during that time, to say that I am adaptable is an understatement. I have taught every grade starting with Kindergarten through to High School. I was a fourth grade teacher for 2 years when I first began teaching and than quickly was transitioned into being the first Technology teacher within the District.... that was almost 17 years ago. Time does Fly! I have worked in every building and have done professional development for teachers using technology, implemented classroom lessons utilizing technology, set up schedules with Administrators and was part of a team that introduced the first Technology Curriculum to the District and played a progressive and active role in the delivery of instruction.
I am very hands on when it comes to using technology in the classroom and love to intergrate our core subjects so that learning is not skill and drill but content that is meaningful and enjoyable.
If you want to help your child out, please insure that they come to school with their chromebooks fully charged and with their chargers. Label your child's chromebook and keep them in a safe place while at home where your child can find them, but most of all teach your child to RESPONSIBILE for their belongings so they can come prepared to school.
The district has issue new password to every student this year, that will be an ongoing pattern for future years. As we have become, " faster , smarter and better .." so have the hackers of the world which have been able to infiltrate our districts firewalls and were spamming content from our student accounts. PLEASE BE MINDFUL of what your child is accessing online while at home in your care.
I am excited to be back to be back in Technology for the next ten months to update myself and familiarize your children with the essentials of technology uses and how they can be a tool in this ever changing world of Artificial Intelligence, I'm eager for this Upcoming Academic School Year and I hope that I can instill that same love of learning through the use of technology in class!
I'm a firm believer of creating a learning environment that is both safe, respectful, comfortable, structured yet welcoming to all students but most of all conducive to the love of learning.
Welcome Classes of 2023- 2024!
Let's Have a Great Year!
