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.

"The Thirst for Knowledge is Never Quenched"

As teachers prepare for another great year, I was very impressed by the knowledge and insight shared by everyone throughout our training. Through the aches and pains of growth and change, our district and school are ready to explode into the future.

As you know, I had the opportunity this summer to spend time with teachers from across the country and I shared with others what we do here.  Teachers were impressed by how we put time, energy and the necessary funding into putting technology into the hands of all students.  They were amazed at how a simple "Handshake" at the door can change relationships and school culture.  They became excited to try it in their classrooms for the difference it might bring.

Here are pictures and video clips to share what we did over the last 3 weeks.
