Chloe P. Interviews Mrs. Bryne
This year we have some new teachers at MSMS. One of them is Mrs. Byrne. We asked Mrs. Byrne ten questions. Mrs. Byrne became a teacher because she likes explaining things, enjoyed working with children, and is very curious. She enjoys the 1:1 iPads when kids don't misuse them because they are good for filming what we do in class and make it easier to share notes with children, like on google classroom. Mrs. Byrne enjoys using Kahoot and JogNog in class but hopes to integrate Flocabulary and PhET as another learning tool. She became a science teacher because before she was a teacher she was a civil engineer and it seemed to fit. Mrs. Byrne’s favorite thing about teaching is doing labs and hands on activities, joking around with kids, and seeing the kids everyday. Out of all the units we cover in science heat and pressure is her favorite. In Mrs. Byrnes opinion the worst part about the iPads are when kids fool around on them and apps like google classrooms don't work. Some of the personal apps she uses are YouTube, Instagram, Overdrive, and iBooks.
