• Welcome to Ms. Cavanaugh's website!


    Our society desperately needs computer and technology students more than ever, and I am so glad you CHOSE my class!  This school year, I will be teaching Exploring Computer Science (ECS) and Computer Applications (CA).  A little bit about each class is described below (and this is all you will see on this website page!)


    Students in the Exploring Computer Science, ECS, class will be introduced to the problem solving and programming curriculum written by UCLA computer science professors.  The six units will include:  Human Computer Interaction, Problem Solving, Computing & Data Analysis, Programming, and Robotics.  Students who successfully complete the ECS course, are eligible to enroll in the CS&P class and then move on to the AP CS course.  We typically do NOT skip students from one class to another.  A successful college student has taken all three of our CS courses.  You are also eligible to obtain a CS honor cord if you take all 3 classes.


    Students in the Computer Applications, CA, course will be eligible to receive college credit for successful completion of the following units:  Keyboarding Speed/Accuracy, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and 10-Key Calculator skills.  All grades, 9-12, are eligible for these units offered by Folsom Lake College. 


    For all of my classes, I will be using Google Classroom, so this particular website will NOT be used to post any student assignments.  Students will log into their Google account at the start of the school year and will be informed of lessons on our class page.


    I look forward to meeting you and having a FANTASTIC year! 


    Ms. Cavanaugh
