Welcome to a new semester! I would like to take a few moments to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Cullen and I will be your child’s teacher for the iPad Publishing course at NHS. This is my eighth year teaching, my sixth year at Natick High School. As an educator, I value my job and the opportunity that I will have to teach your child the requirements he/she will need to complete by the end of the semester to keep up with the fast evolving technological world in which we live.
High School years are challenging and asks students to not only increase his/her skills and knowledge, but to also deal with the every day struggles that most likely did not exist when you or I were in High School. One of those issues is the rapid growth of technology in our activities of daily living. It is my desire and I feel that it is my responsibility, to help students understand how technology can be used as a tool to enhance learning. Your child will be assigned several major projects that he/she will be expected to complete in the classroom.
Lastly, I would like to ask for your permission to be able to post your student’s work on my teacher website at www.mrscullen.com and various Web hosting sites. Over the semester students will produce products off the Web, which would be an honor to share with fellow colleagues and students to help improve the Web Development and Digital Media educational community. Also, I request your student to purchase a 2 GB flash drive (approximately, $5.00) This device will provide your student a safe and secure way to back up work in the class. Please submit the form below before Friday, February 6th.
