WELCOME TO NORTH BUSINESS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY!
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 in Schoology. 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.
I received my Masters of Education in Instructional Technology from Cardinal Stritch University in August of 2009 and my National Board Certification in November of 2013. Prior to that, I received my bachelors degree in business administration from Marquette in 1983 and teacher certification from Concordia University-Wisconsin in January of 2005. I hold the following teaching certifications:
--8th Grade Financial Life Skills
--7th Grade Computer Applications
--8th Grade Careers
--SP Technology Connections
--8th Grade Flex
