    Getting to know me: 
     
    Hello! My name is Susan Ekkela. I teach computers and run the library at Westfield School. I have worked in the Winthrop Harbor School District for seventeen years. Before I moved to the media center I taught third grade.  I received my Bachelor Degree from Lake Forest College where I majored in both Elementary Education and English Literature. After moving to the media center, I went back to school at National Louis University and earned a Masters in Educational Technology. I currently live in Pleasant Prairie, WI with my husband of 27 years and our sixth grade daughter. 
     
     
    About Media Center:  
     
    During media center I see each class for two 30 minute computer/keyboarding times and one 30 minute library time each week.  During our time we learn an assortment of ways to use technology to learn new information and communicate our knowledge. We practice keyboarding, work with multiple software programs, learn basic internet skills and develop research skills.
