Each Grundy Gator comes to the computer lab at least once every week. During that class time, students work on projects or use educational software programs to reinforce topics taught in the classroom. Second through sixth grade students also use computer lab time to practice their keyboarding skills. This helps them to work toward achieving the district sixth grade exit goal of 20 wpm with 90% accuracy.

While in the lab, students will gain a working knowledge of computers and applications such as Word, PowerPoint, Publisher and Excel. Other software programs available to students in our lab include Type to Learn 3, Raz-Kids, Timeliner, IXL Math and many others. We will also learn the proper use of the Internet. 

In our lab students have an opportunity to learn how to use hardware including printers, scanners, digital cameras, digital video recorders and so on.  We have a lot of fun in computer lab, while also learning skills that are becoming more important everyday in our lives!

Outside of school I have been married to my husband, Michael, for 19 years.  We both grew up in Northeast Ohio and have also lived in Ann Arbor, MI before settling in Morton.  We have 3 children who attend Morton schools. 

In my free time I enjoy watching my children play sports and rooting for the beloved Ohio State Buckeyes and all Cleveland sports teams.
