Courses That Are Developed With Student Input

1º, 3º, 4º, 6º Web Design I and III

✨⭐️Web Design and Authoring I    Period ⭐️✨

⚛️The first phase of my courses involves assessment of each student’s digital literacy and learning styles. The emphasis is placed on figuring out each student’s level of digital literacy as well as the literacy of each class cohort. This establishes a baseline for the year so that there is progress to compare with when the school year ends. ⚛️We are currently working on Photoshop and Dreamweaver to increase individual and group competency. 3rd Period is normal Web I and 6th is advance Web I.

✨⭐️Web Design and Authoring III &   Period ⭐️✨

In Web Design III my emphasis is on making sure that all students are skilled and confident enough to finish the capstone elements by the end of the year.

Simplified Syllabus


HTML is the standard markup language for creating Web pages.
  • HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language
  • HTML describes the structure of Web pages using markup
  • HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages
  • HTML elements are represented by tags
  • HTML tags label pieces of content such as “heading”, “paragraph”, “table”, and so on
  • Browsers do not display the HTML tags, but use them to render the content of the page

Technology and Apps Class

This is an introduction course that helps to familiarize 9th graders with technology and coding while developing skills for High School Success through Digital Literacy. Weber and SUSD Career Technical Education leadership is also encouraging the study of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Artificial Intelligence and machine learning will mean that the study of Python will increase.
