    We are excited to offer our school community the first edition of "The INNOVATOR". This periodical is a collaborative effort of our District Technology Coordinators to showcase the implementation of technology and innovation occurring within all of our schools. As you read, view and explore all of the technology tools highlighted in this first edition, we hope that you will be motivated to learn and use one or more of the technology tools provided. Your school-based Technology Coordinator is ready to take you and your students to the next level in integrating technology within your lessons! Happy reading! Have a super Tuesday everyone.
