    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Palmetto Elementary School! My name is Stacy Thurman.  This is my eleventh year as the computer lab teacher at the greatest elementary school in the world!  I was educated here at in the Palmetto schools. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach your child.
     I am married to my best friend, Tiko, who is the pastor of Mt. Able Baptist Church and singer extraordinaire.  We have two beautiful and intelligent children, Deshante and Jordan. We are a close-knit family who loves to sing, play, and worship together.  I am also the proud author of the J. Martin book series for children.
     I love working as the computer lab manager because it allows me to work with and enhance the computer skills of every child in the school. In the computer lab, students will learn about the parts of the computer, internet, keyboarding, typing, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Power Point.  This year, students will engage in a program new to ASD1 called Learning.com. Students are also tested in MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) in the computer lab twice each year. Tests are divided into three parts (math, reading, and language) and given weekly over a four week period. Also, our third, fourth, and fifth grade students will continue an exciting typing program called Type to Learn 4. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to email me at thurmans@apps.anderson1.org. I am looking forward to a great year!
