Welcome to 7th & 8th grade Keyboarding and Computer Applications!
I am a native of Laurinburg, NC, and moved to SC after completing 20 years of service in the Army. I live in Columbia, SC with my daughter Alisha, and my two dogs Sophie and Silver. This is my second year teaching at Dutch Fork Middle School.
Keyboarding students will use EduTyping.com, an online platform for keying instruction. Students will be able to use this program in class and at home with their Chrome Books.
Computer Applications students will use Cengage MindTap, an online platform for business application instruction. Students will learn how to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. The Cengage Website is all encompassing, and students will be able to access the Microsoft Applications from their Chrome Books.
I will be using Google Classroom extensively throughout the school term. Here is the link: https://classroom.google.com/u/0/h. There you will find class assignments, due dates, announcements, class procedures, and the course syllabus. You will also find assignment due dates on my Calendar on this web page. I am located in Computer Lab C and will be available for tutoring and conferences on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:25 - 12:45 and Thursday from 3:45 - 4:30. Students may also get a pass to come to Computer Lab C during their Den to work on assignments.
I am excited to work with Dutch Fork Middle School students as they learn to master Keyboarding and Computer Application skills, and look forward to a great semester!
