I teach Business Co-op, Graphic Design, Film and Web Design classes at Sentinel High School, Missoula, Montana. I teach all of my classes using a Learning Management System called Moodle and Google Classroom. I teach in a paperless classroom. Students will find all of their assignments online and will also turn in all of their assignments online. If students have trouble fitting these classes into their schedule, I also work with Independent Study students.
