Hello parents & students!

I am excited about this school year because most students in all grades will complete one of my classes, either in the 1st semester or the 2nd semester.

6th graders will learn keyboarding and Google Docs; using these skills, they will identify an injustice towards an animal population and complete a one-page Google Doc to address and develop an effective way to spread awareness of the injustice. 

7th graders will learn Google Sheets, Google Slides & Marketing Strategies; using these skills they will design and create packaging to help sell a new range of healthy yogurt-covered raisins, aimed at children between the ages of 9 and 12. 

8th graders will learn Principles of Business and Concepts of Entrepreneurship; using these skills they will create a Food Truck. Students will work in pairs to collaborate on a concept; they will be required to write a business plan, design the menu and a logo for the truck, and give an oral presentation to the class.

We are going to have a great year! Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns.
