My name is Emily Beitz and I teach Computer Science here at DCES. The state of Mississippi has implemented new curriculum standards for Computer Science and we will be begin working on those this year. In Computer Science this year, your student will be learning about coding. We will be using a program called Code.org and working on different aspects of Computer Science every week. We will also be learning the keyboard and typing skills, researching assignments from their Science, ELA, and Social Studies teachers. Learning to use the Microsoft Office Suite will also be a part of Computer Science class.
