DBMS Celebrates Digital Learning Day
Published by Kristy Sartain on May 3, 2018
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

Many of our students were able to celebrate Digital Learning Day by learning how to code using games on Hour of Code. This website is a great way to learn how to code using many different coding languages. As you can see by the pictures, we all had a great time. Hour of Code is free and can be used on any device or computer.

Congratulations to Mrs. T. Smith and Mrs. Sartain for winning a North Carolina Geographic Alliance Geo-Inquiry Institute Fellowship. They will get to travel to NCCAT at Ocracoke over the summer and learn how to implement the Geo-Inquiry Process into their teaching. The Geo-Inquiry Process relies on using a geographic perspective, offering a unique lens to analyze space, place, and the interconnections between both the human and natural world. Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process, students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities.

Congratulations to Mrs. Smith, the DBMS Teacher of the Year!

Mrs. Smith, DBMS Teacher of the YearMy teaching philosophy is that every child can learn, we must only figure out how to reach them. Everyone is gifted at something. As an educator, it is my job to try and find that gift and help the child to see it. Discovering our strengths gives us the courage and fortitude to strengthen our weakness. I try to help my students see that challenges and failures are all apart of process that leads to success. In the words of Albert Einstein “You never fail until you stop trying. I have had the privilege to work at DBMS for six years. My first year was spent volunteering at the school and I discovered that some of the greatest and most talented children in Cumberland County are right here in the Douglas Byrd Community. There is greatness here! As a community, we must continue to expose and push our youth toward excellence. We have to help them see past the immediate and help them build dreams for the future. We must remind them of the great possibilities that await and the decisions they must make in order to be successful. We must support, encourage, and challenge them to be the best versions of themselves.
