My Students

My students are an amazing set of business professional students who come from an economically disadvantaged background. In my classroom, they undergo training and instruction in preparation for real-world meaningful experiences. They engage in hands-on training in the workforce that will help shape their future. They learn skills necessary for becoming designers and transition to young working professionals. They are a bright, loving, and fun group.

My Project

Students are able to move away from Chromebooks to get laptops that will help them obtain industry certifications. The student will take the Microsoft Office Exams and Adobe Certifications. Chromebooks do not have adequate software or requirement to run the testing/certification software.

Students will gain a competitive advantage over other students.

Having training that your competitors don't can set you apart when pursuing a new career.

The biggest advantage to students earning industry certification is that the certification validates that the student has demonstrated mastery of up-to-date skills in a career field. Industry certifications reflect the industry's latest needs and help students increase earning potential.
