Computer Class

Teacher: Mr. Tipton

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Saintt Michael School year.

Let me start by saying I am very excited for the opportunity to work with your children as we explore the world of technology together.

My goal is to make computer class fun, interesting and educational. I will follow much of the same curriculum handed down to me but will also be adding new lessons, depending on the grade level, such as basics of web design, graphics arts, introduction to the cloud and cloud resources, hands-on hardware investigation and more. I know some of these have been covered in the past, but I am hoping to introduce new methods and tools.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions I would love to hear them. Please email me at
