Katie Usher

Elementary School Teacher

I am in my seventh year teaching fourth-grade math and science to the gifted and talented population in Lufkin, Texas. I enjoy including technology in my lessons to enhance the learning for all my students. I see technology as a way to easily differentiate for each student. I recently graduated with my master’s in digital learning and leading from Lamar University. I enjoy sharing the great things that are happening in my classroom via Twitter (@KUsher_LISD4th).

      Differentiating by Offering Choices

      Elementary students have a better chance of showing what they’re learning when they have a choice about how to show it.
