My name is Mrs. Tinsley and I am the Computer E.A. at Venetucci. It is an honor to work with your student(s) and to watch them grow throughout the school year. I started at Venetucci in 2019 and I have enjoyed every minute of it! Computers play such a vital role in every field. Daily computer use is essential as it helps young learners understand various software tools.
In the computer lab we learn how to stay safe while using the internet. Our Mustangs will learn proper hand placement on the keyboard and how to use a mouse. Typing practice and learning how to use their school login and password is used daily. We use a variety of educational websites and games.
