    Greetings and welcome to my website where we will take this wonderful journey together in preparing your son or daughter to make money and make good sound decisions as they progress through life beginning now.  Our process is simple, first we begin in 6th grade with basic keyboarding for 9 weeks, then in 7th grade we offer a more in-depth keyboarding class that incorporates all keys.  In addition, students will learn how to create flyers and other types of media using Microsoft Publisher.    In 8th grade our curriculum focuses on Business processes and concepts that make up the US economic structure and provide jobs for people in the US.  We start with business basics then moving through to Economics, Marketing, Management, Entrepreneurship, and Accounting.  Your child in 8th grade will learn how to market his or her own business with flyers and business cards as basic parts of the small business process.  Other interesting items our students work with are creating various types of PowerPoint (Presentation Software) and Publisher projects.  NOTE:  ALL STUDENTS WILL REQUIRE A FLASH DRIVE AND SET OF EAR BUDS FOR MY CLASS.  These are items that belong to your child and will allow them to share their work with you at home if you have MS Office 13.  Please note:  If you, as a parent, are looking to improve your keyboarding skills, your son or daughter will have the complete course on their FLASH DRIVE.  You can learn how to keyboard with exceptional accuracy and confidence...no more one finger typing.


    Sincerely,
