Grades 4 - 8
My name is Debra Jackson-Noble, and I am the administrator in your school district, at Phoenix Science and Technology Center.
It is time once again to start anew; the staff of Phoenix Science and Technology Center is ready to meet the challenge.
With this being my second year as principal at the Phoenix Center, I look forward to creating a safe and comfortable environment for teaching and learning for students and well as staff members. I have patience and a positive attitude along with a proven track record of warm interactions with parents and students. Let me explain briefly how I can contribute to your child’s education.
I hold an Administration and Leadership Masters degree through Walden University. I also hold my Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Michigan (Flint) and a Certificate of Achievement from an Administrative Leadership Academy in the State of Michigan. I realize that these are attributes for such a position. I have a natural ability to create a constructive and well-maintained environment.
Again, please be assured that I will do my best to provide the educational experience needed for the students in this building. My genuine interest in pursuing my career in the growth of young people will produce an energizing and creative learning environment that will bring out the best in the staff & students I work with.
Regular Office Hours 7:00am - 4:00pm
PHOENIX SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER
The Phoenix Science and Technology Center will provide a very exciting science and technology program this school year, there will be a continuous focus on advancing the skills of our students through the use of technology in all subject areas. The State’s grade level expectations (GLCE’s) will be our formal guide. Electives and extracurricular activities will be provided to supplement and enhance instruction at the secondary level.
We value our community partnerships and all the support they provide for us, just to share a few: Nexteer Automotive with the Junior Achievement and Stevens World Van-Lines with the READ program,
Junior Achievement: sponsored by Nexteer Automotive is one of the fine programs offered by Nexteer Automotive with our fourth and fifth graders. They will explore and study careers, the skills people need to work in specific careers, and how businesses contribute to a city. The older ones will explore personal finance and student's education and career options based on their skills, interests, and values; also demonstrate the economic benefit of staying in school. They will work in conjunction with our teachers. Junior Achievement will provide all the needed volunteers for the program for volunteer-teacher led sessions; they will be making the correlation between the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations (GLCE's) and the Junior Achievement Program. Making learning come alive for student success.
Stevens World Van-Lines will continue the one to one reading program with selected students reading leveled and interest books. The students love the interaction with the volunteers that visit them each week.
We have Interwirte boards, MOBI’s, laptops, three computer labs, document cameras and other technologically advanced tools to enhance the learning process here at Phoenix. Research findings suggest that gizmos are an effective and engaging way to move students to inquiry-based science and math. and that gizmos move students to use higher-level thinking skills (Marzano, 2001). Therefore, this combination of science, math and technology is a powerful strategy to motivate and engage learners.
