Colorado Early Colleges – Fort Collins

I started teaching at Colorado Early Colleges – Fort Collins in August 2017. I have provided schedules for each semester and pages for each class which includes assignments and other pertinent information.

Starting in the Spring of 2018, I will teach all Computer Science classes at the high school. I earned my CTE (Career and Technical Education) certification in both STEM Science/Technology/Engineering/Math and IT (Information Technology). This is in addition to my Colorado Professional Teaching Certificate. All of my high school Computer Science classes are through Front Range Community College.

The IT program is part of the CTE program as set up by the Colorado Association of Career and Technical Education (CACTE). Certain standards apply to properly setting up such a program. This includes creating a programming with year long sequences, which students are encouraged to complete. These sequences include:

Seq First Semester Second Semester Description
1. CIS118 – Introduction to PC Applications

CSC119 – Introduction to Programming These two courses form the basis of most FRCC Computer Information Systems Certification programs
2. CIS135 – PC Word Processing CIS155 – PC Spreadsheet Concepts: Excel Complete 1. with this and 3. to earn FRCC Application Specialist Certificate

Humor

A little humor is always helpful, especially when it comes to teaching mathematics concepts. A friend and co-mathematics teacher posted this and I thought it was too precious to not share:
