Mrs. Laurie O'Kelly

Welcome to Computer Experience and STEM! 

I love 6th grade and CrossRoads!  After many years working as an accountant, I made a career change to become a teacher.  I'm a graduate of Irmo High School, USC with a B.S. in Accounting, and I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Career and Technology.   This year I will be teaching Computer Experience and STEM. We will have fun being creative and learning new technologies. 

 

The "Computer Experience" course is designed to help perfect keyboarding skills and explore a variety of applications and programs.  A strong emphasis is placed on proper keyboarding technique to improve accuracy, speed and general efficiency in computer operations. Students will use a variety of google apps in the class. 

 

In the "STEM" course, students will explore a variety of applications and programs including ccoding, robotics, 3-D printing, and building rollercoasters.
