Mr. Kinsy McVay

     The 2019-20 school year will be my seventh year teaching and learning with the wonderful students and staff at SES as the K-6  art teacher and the K-12 Technology Integrator!  As an art teacher, I am always looking for fun, engaging ways to promote creativity and problem-solving with my students.  Students will have the opportunity to do everything from drawing to sculpting to 3D printing!  If you'd like to keep up with everything going on in the art classroom, be sure to sign up for the free Seesaw app at the beginning of the year (ask the homeroom teachers for details).  Students will use the app to post pictures and videos of their projects, reflect on their learning, and provide feedback for their peers.  As parents and family members, Seesaw allows you to view your child's posts instantly and leave comments of praise and encouragament.
     As the Technology Integrator, it is my goal to act as a resource for teachers as they look for ways to leverage technology and adapt teaching practices to meet the changing needs of this new generation of students.  Technology use varies from class to class and from grade to grade so there is never a dull moment as I explore solutions and look for new tools that teachers and students can use to grow their learning. You can learn more about my educational technology beliefs here.
     Please don't hesistat to contact me with questions or ideas. I look forward to hearing from you, and I look forward to another great year with the staff and students of Southeast of Saline!
