I am a teacher, techie, father, and dancer. I love technology and problem solving. Prior to teaching, I did most of my development work for AT&T where I created intranet websites, applications, and databases. These days, I focus on teaching, spending time with family, and hitting the gym. I also dance salsa, bachata, cumbia, and merengue for fun. Well, I used to!
Class announcements will be posted on Google Classroom. You can get in touch with me via email. To expedite a response, when contacting me, you must provide the following in your subject line:
Example: P5 - WPD 2
I expect to get a lot of emails this school year. All emails not following the above subject line requirement will not be addressed. It may take up to 24 hours to receive a reply during the week and 48 hours on the weekend. Do not wait until the last minute to send a message for help.
If you have a question about the course or an assignment, I encourage you to post your question in the Google Classroom “stream.” The stream is visible to the entire class community, so I encourage you to both ask and answer questions there. If a classmate asks a question and you know the answer, please jump in and help them out!
The following class rules will be enforced:
- Pay attention to the teacher - No talking while the teacher is talking
- Raise your hand for assistance – Raise virtual hand and be patient
- Work quietly - Collaboration is encouraged in your online groups
- Take care of computer equipment - Do not change computer settings
Students are expected to sign in to live sessions on time and follow school and class rules. Internet game playing and unauthorized Web surfing will lead to you falling behind. Be careful. It is easy to get lost.
