Teacher of the Week – Elisa Baughman

Elisa Baughman
Grade 7/8 Computer Technology Teacher
Freedom Middle School
Franklin, TN

“I am in my 23rd year of teaching, but my first year teaching 7th and 8th grade computer technology classes. As a former ELA teacher, I found Tuva to be fascinating. Although I felt a little rusty on my “data analysis” and “math” lingo, I was immediately intrigued by how quickly and easily my students learned to discover for themselves all that Tuva has to offer. I gave them a few trial lessons and then let them choose data sets that interested them to create their own activities for others.  To quote an 8th grade boy in my class- ‘It’s a good source of data, but the multiple ways to look at the information makes it fun!’”
