My name is Mrs. Dismukes. I am so excited to be a part of the Challenge Charter School team. Before becoming a CCS Eagle, I previously taught 4th grade and 5th grade. I received my Masters in Educational Technology from Northern Arizona University. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and crafting with my daughter.
Technology is defined as “any invention, including tools, machines, materials, techniques, and sources of power, that makes people’s work easier. “
The goal of our CCS technology lab is to become empowered learners, responsible digital citizens and creative communicators. We will use a variety of technologies to construct knowledge, practice being innovative designers, and use these tools to aid global collaborating.
