Welcome to Mr. Hatcher's class!

  • Hello Students and Parents,
    I am super excited about getting back to school and diving into our amazing curriculum.  This year is going to be so fun and educational for both myself and the students.
    I'm new to FMS, so a little about myself:  I've been teaching technology classes for the past 22 years at Mills Middle in Rancho Cordova. My courses have included Project Lead the Way Computer Science, PLTW App Creators, PLTW Computer Science for Innovators and Makers, PLTW Automation and Robotics, Video Production, Yearbook, and Computer Apps. My clear credential and college degree are in English (first six years of my career spent teaching English), so I also have a strong foundation in communications that has helped me to weave digital media and journalism into my courses.
    I look forward to getting to know my new students and leading you through fun, techy projects that prepare you for success in school and careers. 
    As I have more details on my schedule and as we approach the beginning of the school year, I will be updating my web pages.  I will also be posting and regularly updating assignments, materials, procedures, expectations, etc. in Google Classroom.
    Welcome back. We're going to have a great year!
    -Mr. Hatcher
