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.

Changes in store for “Principles of Information Technology”


After 23 years of teaching a wide range of computer technology classes and being limited by a one semester time period, I have decided to expand learning opportunities for my students.  Instead of students being limited to the 4 or 5 technology topics taught each semester, I will be implementing a wide range of “Individual Learning Modules” for Self-Paced instruction.  Students will now choose their technology topics from 15 different self-learning modules.  Each module is set up with videos, worksheets, various learning activities and assessments.  Each module is designed for mastery of the work skills and technology content all students must have upon entering high school, college and the workplace.  As always, I will be available to work with students who may need help and to answer any questions they may have.
