Mr. Paul L. Nelson Anderson High English Lit. I, at first, expected to be weighed down with a ton of work that I would simply dismiss after the project was over. I was mistaken! I have always been interested in computers since the days of the “Commodore Pet” computers that appeared in my grammar school classrooms. My expectations now are for me to develop a teacher website for all my classes and continue to learn about computers. I would also love to be able to teach computers classes (someday)! This class has been a lot of work, but very useful. I feel it’s truly a DEVELOPMENTAL course.
