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

In my high school computer lab classroom, one of the greatest challenges can be getting students to recognize computers and computing devices as tools, not as forms of entertainment.

Recognizing that computing is more than just entertainment is not always so easy in our tech-driven, lightning-speed, attention-short society.

There are too many of our young people zoned in and zoned out on their devices, too focused on their entertainment value to realize that they can not only play and participate, but also CREATE.

During this upcoming school year, I want to show my students how they can fully integrate the love for interactive technology with the use of that same technology to develop, create, innovate, and present their own products for others to play and participate.

I believe that obtaining and using the book, "HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites" by Jon Duckett, can help my students get and develop the ability to create technology instead of just being consumers of it. My Virtual Enterprise students need it in order to design, create, and manage better, more effective websites for their virtual business firms. My Entrepreneurship classes need the book to help them discover the "gateway" to expanded use of technology via coding, and my Fundamentals of Web Design students will come to use this text as their coding "Bible" that guides their instruction in a practical and user-friendly way!
