Mrs. Becker - Computer Applications

Welcome to 7th Grade Computer Applications! I have been a teacher in the Nampa School District since 2012. Prior to this I worked for the Nampa School District in Human Resources for 7 years. I graduated from Northwest Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Education, with teaching endorsements in Math and Physical Education. I have always enjoyed the world of computers and am excited to be your Computer Applications teacher this year.

This is a semester long course that is required for all 7th graders. The main focus is on increasing their typing time skills. Their goal is to type 30 words per minute with their hands covered by the end of the semester. However, they will also learn about Digital Citizenship, Microsoft Office 2016 Word, PowerPoint and Excel and be introduced to some Computer Science coding. This class is intended to make them more efficient in assignments they complete in other classes and in the future.
