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.

We bid Farewell to "Project Lead the Way"

Computer Science

Over the last 2 years, Mr. Henely and I had the opportunity to earn our PLTW Computer Science certification.   This enabled us to work with our 6th and 7th graders as they learned Python Computer Programming and created apps using MIT App Inventor.  As the grant draws to a close, we must showcase some of the great work our 6th and 7th grade students have done.  We also give thanks to "Proejct Lead the Way" for this great opportunity. 

A special document was created to showcase a sampling of my student's work over the past 2 years.

Mr. Henley's showcase is availalble through his blog.
