Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Krasnow

      Welcome to the 5th Grade, 2015-2016.  I've been teaching 5th grade for 15 years now. I received my teaching credential at National University, and my B.A. at San Jose State University.  My education did not end there, however.  I learned how to integrate technology into my teaching by attending a summer program at Foothill College.  I have attended the Teacher's Institute at Colonial Williamsburg in 2005.  I attended the National Teacher's Initiative at Yale University in 2012, developing a unit that I still use in my classroom.  Currently, I am a member of the technology cohort.   My students each have  their own iPads and I integrate applications in anyway that will enhance their learning.  The excitement the iPads bring to learning is truly inspiring.  This year I received a Smartboard and am hopeful it will increases student engagement.  I believe staying current with my education is an important part of being an effective, innovation and knowledgeable classroom teacher.
