Welcome to Miss Field's tech website! You can learn more about our technology integration by using the pages. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting my site!
My name is Janelle Field, and the 2019/2020 school year marks my 24TH year as a teacher and my 22nd year here at BBE Elementary School. Before moving to Belgrade, I spent two years teaching grade five in the Rockford Public School system, in Rockford, MN. After the second year of teaching, I left the classroom to become a paraprofessional at BBE Elementary School. While I enjoyed working as a paraprofessional, my heart was still in the classroom, so when a teaching position opened up, I chose to return to teaching the following year. This year I will be the Tech/ Innovative Specialist for our school!
I attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education/ Coaching. I have continued to take classes and workshops after receiving my degree and truly consider myself a life-long learner.
I have always loved gadgets and am passionate about technology. I am always looking for ways to incorporate technology into my teaching, so I am very excited about this site. My philosophy regarding technology education is that technology has the "spark" factor for students. Kids are using technology anyway, so I want to do everything I can to leverage technology for educational purposes. I hope you find this as a useful tool too.
When I am not working, I love spending time with family and friends. I love running and spending time at the cabin.
Here are some of my favorite things:
Sports: Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball.
Teams: Jaguars and any Minnesota team
Book: City of Ember
