JA Primary Technology

Hi, My name is Mrs. Noland and I'm thrilled to be here at Jefferson Academy. I love kids and I love teaching kids how to use technology!

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, hiking, reading and gardening. You'll often see me riding my bike to school.

Smarty Ants is a comprehensive program of systematic, specific and spiraled instruction in foundational literacy skills that personalizes learning to meet students where they are and accelerate early literacy success. SmartyAnts requires a login. Students login to Clever then choose the SmartyAnts icon. If you need your student's login information, please email me at anoland@jajags.com


In second grade, we introduce typing. This is a great free program to get started on typing. Please remind your students to use the home row keys, so they develop great habits.
