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.

Week 25 (February 29, 2016

During "Public School Week" students were pretty busy.

6th Grade Computer Science students completed a series of Python programming exercises. With each exercise, students are learning and mastering the process of typing, debugging and running Python Programs.

8th graders were busy this week working on a video with pointers and tips to help students prepare for the "STAAR" test.  The videos are near completion and as the videos are completed on Monday or Tuesday, I hope to post them for all students to see and learn from.
