Ms. Hanson's Class

Computer Science

Welcome to Computer Science/Computer Skills @ Thunder Vista

I am so excited to welcome your student into the Next Gen classroom at Thunder Vista. Within the tech lab, we will be exploring a variety of physical computing devices, developing our understanding of how computers work, questioning, seeking solutions and learning how to communicate our thoughts with others. Students at all levels will access my class information via Schoology.  Schoology is a learning management system that allows students to see assignments, submit their work, participate in class discussions and communicate with me.

I look forward to an amazing 2019-2020 school year.
