WELCOME TO NORTH BUSINESS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY! Thank you for checking out the Business and Information Technology Department at Falls North Middle School.  We look forward to a great 2014/15 school year, my tenth here at North.

In order to help parents and students keep up with our class topics, assignments, and due dates, I will update my page at least once a week during the school year. Please click on the "Fusion Pages" links below to go to my 8th Grade Careers, Financial Life Skills, Computer Applications, FBLA/School Store, or WEB Leader pages.  I will always try to follow the plan on each class page, but there may be times when we have to change that plan in order to best meet the needs of our students.
