Class Structure

The students rotate through a series of projects that enable them to learn new computer programs, develop effective research and organizational skills, reinforce other subject areas, and prepare students to be successful in high school. The students will practice learning strategies that enable them to become independent and collaborative learners.  The students will be using programs such as Mavis Beacon (typing program), Word, PowerPoint, Google Docs, Google Slides, Prezi, and iMovie.


It is imperative that students are present every day as all projects are to be completed during class time.  In the event of missed class time, it will be the student’s responsibility to set up a time to come to the lab before school or after school to make up missed assignments.  No time will be available during class to make up work.


I will be utilizing Google Classroom on a daily basis to communicate with the students in class regarding assignments and projects, along with receiving feedback from the students through open-ended questions, short quizzes, and surveys.  The students will also be able to contact me regarding assignments or missed class time by email through the Google Classroom app.



Email is the best way to contact me.  You can email me at
