Mrs. Shawn White

I am so excited to be teaching at GMS this year.  I was a librarian in the district for 11 years and am now thrilled to be teaching ICT 1.  I attended Mississippi University for Women where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and then went on to the University of Alabama to receive my Masters in Library and Information Science. I look forward to working with each of you during the school year.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at

Message from the Teacher
Welcome to ICT 1!  This is a new kind of computer class that will help prepare students for the real world.  The expectations are high for this group of technologically savvy students! 
ICT 1 is a rigorous academic course that will teach the student how to do many things that they will do in their everyday lives.  We have graded assignments almost daily and the students will be tested every few weeks on the material covered. We also have a final project at the end of the year.  This class is much more than the computer class that students have attended once or twice a week as an elementary student. 
Technology never ceases to amaze me! I know life can be a bit hectic when kids start school and deadlines can become overwhelming when students have so many classes. I've been introduced to a text message reminder application that will allow me to periodically send out classroom and school reminders via text message to help take the burden of remembering to check the website off of you. To participate in receiving text message reminders for the class such as due dates and special announcements, simply text 804-269-8213 with the message @whiteict. Rest assured that you will not receive advertisement texts and your phone number will remain private. All of your personal information will remain completely confidential! You may choose to opt out at anytime by messaging "stop" to the above number. Standard text message rates will apply.
It is my hope that this will help strengthen the home-school connection. Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you have any questions.
