Welcome to Cameron ISD….YOE NATION! Our mission at Cameron ISD begins with a basic, yet challenging, question; what do our children need to learn to be successful in life? While the question may be simple, the answer is complex. The educational community recognizes that the skills necessary for this generation of learners is constantly evolving. For certain, the ever-changing technological advances and the shift in our economy now require student mastery of additional skills to be successful in their interdependent global society.
Creativity and Innovation, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking and Problem Solving are considered the 4C’s of the 21st century. While these skills are not new, they are now necessary for one to obtain a high level of success. The traditional 3R’s must be woven together with the 4C’s by technology literacy and operations that model technology tools used in today and tomorrow’s workplace. Our classrooms must embrace technology and reduce the importance of pencil-paper task as the primary means of assessment. I am very thankful Cameron ISD has a staff that is willing to change and adapt to meet the needs of our students.
While our district is small in student numbers, we are huge in student quality. I believe students from Cameron ISD will go out into the world and see what is not there and will then create something new and amazing that will change our society.
