Letter from the Editor

DSouza-Lisa

EDITOR’S NOTE
Winter Issue 2019

Dear Reader,

The winter issue of Today’s Catholic Teacher shares renewed ways to bring the season of Advent into our classrooms. The issue also discusses current shifts in educational reform to incorporate computer science standards into the elementary curriculum.

The 2019 winner in the Technology Integration category of the Innovations in Catholic Education is Our Lady of Perpetual Help Mission Grammar School in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The school’s iPad initiative highlights how technology can be infused across an elementary school using real-world applications. While the implementation at each grade level varies, the school ensures that all students are exposed to technology at school, as many scholars do not have access at home.
Carolyn Astfalk shares a great list of books and online resources for increased student engagement. Similarly, “Ignite the Love of Reading” by Lori Hadacek Chaplin provides readers with suggestions for increasing reading engagement.
I recently completed a Mental Health First Aid certification, and I was moved by Michele Faehnle’s article, “Identify At-Risk Students.” After working for the last two decades with adolescents and young adults, I believe the message Faehnle shares is critical.
Peace and blessings this Christmas season,

Dr. Lisa D’Souza
Editor-at-Large
