I have been teaching for over 10 years. I have taught a variety of courses over this time span to include: Microsoft Word, Word Expert, PowerPoint, Excel, Excel Expert, and Access Database. In addition to Microsoft courses, I have taught Multimedia & Webpage Design, and E-Commerce. For the last nine years, I have been the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Adviser.
Fall 2019 - Courses:
Microsoft Word & PowerPoint Version 2016
In the Microsoft Word & PowerPoint class, students will have the opportunity to take the Microsoft Certifications for: Word, PowerPoint, and Word Expert. Theses exams are considered "industry standards". Industry standards are, in essence, criteria within a particular field of business, and are generally the minimal accepted requirements followed by the members of that industry. In my linked documents, you will find the "Blue Print" for the course, and the "Pacing Guide". The Blue Print will tell you what we are learning in each lesson, and the Pacing Guide is a point of reference of where we should be in order to complete the course in a timely manner.
