My Students

My students are great! They are engaged, positive and intrigued by the opportunities of the Career and Technology Education (CATE) department.

At my school, the students are from various backgrounds, including those who are Air Force or Army dependents from the local base, and others who are children of migrant farm workers.

Some of them are living in abject poverty, some are from middle-level income families and some students are members of families who have attended this school over several years.

I'm proud of the fact that these students come together and support each other regardless of socioeconomic status, race, culture or any other categories. They exhibit a willingness to peacefully coexist here in this school and it sometimes outshines that of the faculty and staff.

That's what makes teaching these students special and assures me that whatever they learn, they will take with them to use in their future educational and career choices.

My Project

This school year, I have been teaching the Fundamentals of Web Design course for students who are generally tech-savvy, but not as much as they think! I had a project funded earlier for the book "HTML and CSS," and it made a huge difference for my Web Design students. They loved the simplicity of the physical design of the book, as well as how it effectively broke down the concepts they learned. Unfortunately, we only received 15 books, so my students had to share their use. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they loved the book so much, they didn't mind sharing and teaming up for their learning (these are teenagers, by the way!). Although it was nice of them to share, we need more of this phenomenal book. I even have colleagues on my hall who are asking to borrow it for their classes, as well. This text has really made a difference for so many students, and I look forward to it helping even more to learn the basic of web design, and to take that learning to even higher levels!
