About Dr. Tammy Summerville

My name is Tammy Summerville, and I am the Director of Magnet Programs in the Huntsville City Schools. I have been in the education profession for twenty-four years serving in the capacity of a classroom teacher (self-contained and semi-departmentalized), reading specialist, Assistant Principal, Principal, and currently the Director of Magnet Programs. All of these experiences have prepared me to become a better leader. <div style=""><br style=""></div><div style="">I absolutely have a passion for technology and the possibilities that it offers. Through my observations and experiences as an instructional leader, I strongly believe that the integration of technology into the curriculum enhances teaching and learning. I have found that technology can be used effectively in classroom instruction to engage learners and facilitate thinking by including: problem solving, exploration, knowledge construction, research, collaboration, communication, reflection, deeper thinking, articulation, and authentic assessment. It really takes learning to another level. </div><div style=""><br style=""></div><div style="">During my leisure time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have been blessed with a supportive husband, Curtis and two wonderful daughters, Emry and Kiara. Emry is a tenth grader and Kiara is a graduate student at the University of Alabama. I also have a love for reading, surfing the Internet using my iPad or other mobile devices, and listening to my iPod Touch. </div><div style=""><br style=""></div><div style="">It is my goal this year to dedicate more time to myself by going to the gym on a regular basis. I want to have a more balanced life. While juggling the demands of a career and taking care of my family, I continue to strive to be a life-long learner by participating in professional growth opportunities.What I know for sure is that I have a passion for continuous improvement. Learning new things is so rewarding not to mention fun!</div>
