Technology Education is an integrated, experience-based instructional program designed to prepare students to be knowledgeable about technology - its evolution, systems, technologies, utilization, and social and cultural significance. It results in the application of mathematics and science concepts to technological systems in areas such as, but not limited to: construction, manufacturing, communications, transportation, biotechnology, and power and energy. Students are challenged to discover, create, solve problems, and construct solutions by using a variety of tools, machines, computer systems, materials, processes and technological systems.
I teach Technology Education to 10th, 11th, and 12th graders all day long. My class is called Exploring Technology, and that's exactly what we do. For those of you wondering what Tech Ed is, read above, and let me just say that it's a dynamic, hands-on class that teaches problem-solving, communication skills, career awareness, and teamwork, along with a basic knowledge of technology. We study technology's past, present, & future.
My job, essentially, is to expose my students to technology to help open the doors of opportunity to them.I am very proud of our program, and of the outstanding students that I've had a chance to teach & work with.

Mankind's Greatest Achievement
|We watch the 12-part HBO miniseries
"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal,
before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him
safely to the Earth. No single space project in this period will be more
impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of
space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish."
