Mrs. Brandy Chmielowicz

Hi! My name is Brandy Chmielowicz. Students, parents and staff call me "Mrs. C." I am the technology teacher here at Powhatan Elementary School. This will be my 18th year in Johnston County Public Schools and my 4th year at Powhatan. I graduated from East Carolina University (2 times!) and have my Masters in Instruction Technology. I taught 3rd grade for 5 years as well as worked in the county office as a Digital Learning Coach for 2 years, but working with the teachers and students at the school level is where I belong.

Technology in the elementary school is so much more than learning the parts of a computer and how to type. I find out what the students are learning in their classrooms and I encorporate that into a variety of tech skills which includes, parts of a computer, letters on the keyboard, researching the web, using QR codes, citing sources, coding, Google Docs, etc. 

Students learn to be aware of their digital footprint, while trying out new programs and techniques. I organize all of my classes in Google Classroom (Including Kindergarten!) and we use Chromebooks in my lab along with other tech tools like a touchpanel board, ipads, document cameras, etc.
