My Students

I’m excited for the new adventure being a computer teacher at PGMS with six and seventh-grade students! Students are in the digital age and need every bit of equipment to successfully complete the projects that are assigned. Students we will be working on basic typing skills and also be able to be certified in Microsoft-MOS, my students are in need of all the supplies that they can to be successful digital students. My students are hard-working and dedicated to their studies my new incoming sixth-graders might be a bit nervous to come into the middle school setting I want to do everything I can to make them feel comfortable in my classroom! I have a warm and safe classroom that I provide for my students every their year that I’ve taught!

My Project

The Chromebooks will help keep my students modern and up to date and successful on all school projects and productivity! My students do not have access to technology in their everyday homes to do basic projects expected in the middle school setting. These will help students create awesome works of art and amazing research projects for all their classes, as well as, utilizing the computer programming in the technology classroom setting! Please help set up my hard working students the basic items they need to keep up with the times in our technology age! They will be so grateful for these items! College career and success is extremely important to my students! Thank you.
