Welcome to Computer Applications at GMS. I am currently teaching three classes: Introduction to Computers at the 6th grade level, Computer Applications at the 7th grade level and Computer Applications at the 8th grade level. Each of these courses are part of the Encore 12 week rotation. I've been part of the GMS staff since 2004. I feel that Computer Applications is a very important part of every child's education having an understanding of computers, basic software programs, internet safety and fundamental economic and financial principles is a must for a child to be college and career ready.
I sincerely believe that the environment in which learning takes place must be conducive to the learning. Understanding these procedures will facilitate our learning processes. Althought I have only a few rules, they are very basic and have direct application in the real world.
My classroom rules are as follows:
- Be on time and prepared for class (Bring Pencil, agenda, paper)
- Mind your manners. Be kind to others. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
- Respect Computer equipment. At the end of class clean up your area and push in chair.
