My Educational Philosophy

My goal is to prepare students to be successful in the workplace no matter what field they end up in. My CTE course specializing in graphic design stresses the importance of effective communication in the workplace, responsibility and integrity, understanding the importance of legalitites and ethics in the graphics industry. We use various types of equipment so students learn about safety rules and procedures in the workplace. In graphics they learn to use a variety of industry software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. They create digital images for various outputs and plan jobs and layouts according to customer specifications.
