In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.
In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Here we are back to school. Training, training, training is the norm. Getting ready is fun and I look forward to a new year with the 6th graders. This year, your child will be involved in the world of Computer Science. Students will be exposed to Python programming, HTML Coding for webpages and students will also create Apps for android devices using the MIT App Inventor On-Line programming system.
Stay tuned weekly for updates on what is going on in class.
