Mr. Brown

Hello, I'm your new computer teacher, Mr. Brown. I came from Joplin Elementary School, where I worked with intervention students half the day and ran a STEM lab the other half. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Our students learned to coding, robotics, computer aided design (CAD), and even 3D printing. We were the first elementary school in Idaho to go to the VEX IQ Robotics World Championships. You will generally find me designing, building, or repairing things. I design and 3D print various materials for classroom use and especially for special needs students when I'm not doing DIY projects around the house. I have a wife, 2 boys and a rescue pitbull named Glitch. We are huge Lego fanatics. 

A New Computer Lab Curriculum is on the way!

I am working with other staff in our district to improve what we learn in the lab. Our goals are to help students use their technology devices more effectively in the classroom, increase grade level subject and topic integration into our digital tools lessons, and implement new computer science and project based learning opportunities into the curriculum. In short, students will learn to proficiently apply their digital tools in and out of the classroom, and we get to do some awesome stuff at the end of the year like coding, computer aided design (CAD), Minecraft Coding, and more! Some special projects will be happening this year and I will be sure to keep you all up to date.

Multi-Tier Support System (MTSS)

Previously called Response To Intervention (RTI), MTSS is a way for West Ada staff to to not only focus on students' academic progress, but their behavioral and social emotional progress as well. MTSS provides the framework for identifying and assisting students with their individual needs and the various strategies to create and track student progress. When I'm not teaching computer classes, I will be assisting classroom teachers as they guide students along their learning paths across multiple subjects. It is important to note that while I may be working with your student with intervention, questions regarding your student's progress on anything not related to computer lab work should be sent to their classroom teacher.
