Hello! I have worked for the West Ada School District for 14+ years at Mary McPherson Elementary. This will be my 14th year as the Computer Lab Instructor and I absolutely love having the opportunity to work with all of the students at MME and teaching them computer skills.
I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and have lived here my whole life. I worked almost 20 years for Hewlett-Packard and gained most of my technology skills/knowledge during that time. I have three “wonderful” children, my oldest daughter, Mandy, is married and lives in Washington. My son, Kristophor, lives with me in Meridian and my youngest daughter, Madison, lives in her own apartment in Boise. I have a sweet little Schnauzer named "Myah" and 2 crazy cats, "Prim" and "Binx". I also have three grandchildren, Victoria, Elizabeth and Wyatt who I adore.
When I am not working I love spending time with my family, camping, reading and of course learning new technology.
Students come to the lab once a week for 1/2 hr. In addition to learning how to use a computer, computer terminology, Digital Citizenship, how to save files, and accessing their One Drive; student activities may include:
• Type to Learn Keyboarding
• Microsoft Office Word
• Microsoft PowerPoint
• Coding activities
• MAP/Standardized Testing
Teachers also bring their class for additional computer lab time to complete/publish writing projects, do research and take tests.
I look forward to another fantastic year! Please email me with any questions or comments!!
