My name is Susie Mauldin. I have been an educator for 26 years. This is my 5th year at R.S.I.S. I am passionate about reading, backpacking, cooking, biking, and anything that has to do with the outdoors. I love being a communication arts teacher because I truly believe that being a good reader and writer makes us more successful in life. I am excited about
this school year and plan on trying my hardest to give your child the best education possible.
My 1:1 Pedagogy
I believe that students learn best when they are highly engaged in the learning process. This
means they are actively involved in building new ideas based on what they know and what they
will need to know. Students need to function in today’s technology driven world. Without
technology skills and the ability to collaborate locally or globally, they will be at a severe
disadvantage when competing for future jobs. Technology allows students to access the most
current ideas and gives them the ability to manipulate and communicate those ideas in
My role is to ascertain the areas of growth for my students as individuals. Technology allows for
this more individualized learning to occur. I will need to cultivate an environment of highly
engaged learners that know how to use technology to communicate and present their ideas to
the appropriate audience.
Students will need to feel that technology is as natural to them as breathing when it comes to
communicating and collaborating with others. Technology will be the tool for them to create,
explore, and inquire into the world of knowledge, and then take that knowledge and build upon
it and share with the world at large.
