March Madness: Life-long Learner

   Learning is a lifelong process. Ask Joy Mansfield, art teacher at Brantner Elementary. After 29 years of teaching, Joy decided to get a Masters' Degree in Educational Technology.

  While she used to be afraid of technology... of pushing the wrong button... Joy has now embraced it! Her new learning has energized her, resulting in a huge boost of enthusiasm for teaching. Some of the technology applications Joy has been integrating in her instruction includes Web Quest, Photo Story, and Movie Maker. Joy states, "I started with what I had and what was free."

   To see more of Joy's passion for learning check out the The Brantner Studio website. There is no teacher "burn-out" here... Joy Mansfield is on fire!
