I serve two primary purposes here at SYVUHSD: teacher and technician. As an ROP teacher, my Computer Software Applications class will set students on their way to becoming very familiar with the Microsoft Office Suite of programs. We use the latest Office 2007 versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access and Outlook to become more productive and efficient as a student and as an office worker.
My Computer Repair class will make students comfortable with the "under the hood" aspects of a computer's operation. It is aligned with the industry standard CompTIA A+ certification program and provides a stepping stone to the Information Technology industry.
A new course this year is Network+/Security+. It is also aligned to the CompTIA certifications in these areas and will teach students how networks work and the best ways to keep computer systems free from malware and other attacks.
Both Computer Repair and Network+/Security+ use TestOut's LabSim program to give students "performance-based" instruction and assessment to help them develop on-the-job skils.
As a technician and trainer, I keep the systems in shape and provide help to the staff as they use their PC's.
