Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Introduction to Computer Applications! My name is Melissa Crissman, and I am incredibly excited to take this journey with you! I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, and I worked for 12 years in the Telecommunications industry before becoming a licensed educator. I am endorsed to teach Business Education and Information Technology in Middle School and High School. This will be my 11th year as a Loudoun County Public Schools teacher.
This course is designed to introduce middle school students to the basics of computers, keyboarding skills, and potential careers. Students will develop and enhance touch skills for entering information using a keyboard to compose and produce personal, educational, and professional documents. I will also incorporate programming skills and entrepreneurial concepts into this course.
I am honored to be teaching this very important foundational skill, and I look forward to working with you! Let's have a fantastic year!
