Today marks the first day of my journey teaching Computer Science and related concepts at Monticello Middle School. I taught a few years of Computer Science/Math Lab at PVO and one year of Movie Making in Park Ridge. I am excited for the opportunity, my students, and the community.
Computer Science: The bulk of our work will be in Computer Science. Students will understand how a computer "thinks" and design programs and games.
Typing: Students will still cover a little bit of typing, but they will be asked to practice that skill outside of the classroom. We'll also pick up some keyboard shortcuts along the way.
Office & Google Docs: We will cover some design elements related to presentations, papers, and the web.
Computers: We'll get into number systems, hardware, and countless other topics.
