Two retired educators who never dreamed of computers in the classroom when they started out, are now helping Forrest County teachers to incorporate the latest technology tools into their lesson plans. “Paper and pencil are outdated,” said Debbie Rigby, 56, a 30-year teacher, who retired three years ago. “Technology is the way the world is,” said Yvonne Green, 54, a teacher of 27 years, who also retired three years ago. “Every student has a laptop in Japan.” Now Rigby and Green are working again, 20 hours a week, with Forrest County School District teachers at Earl Travillon Attendance Center and North Forrest High School.
