I am excited to be teaching Computer Applications, Financial Literacy, and Coding at Liberty Middle School. Students will use various applications in Google Suite to explore and develop important skills and concepts. Entrepreneurship education equips students to seek out problem-solving opportunities and think outside the box. Financial Literacy introduces students to the basics of money management. That knowledge lays a foundation for students to build strong money habits early on and avoid many of the mistakes that lead to lifelong money struggles. Coding gives students the ability to create technologies that could change the world. In addition to students learning the basics of a skill set that can be used in a future career, coding also helps develop skills for problem-solving and overcoming challenges.
