Welcome students! I am confident that my Information Technology courses will supply you with the knowledge, resources, equipment, and enthusiasm to learn and develop life-long computer repair, networking, programming, web development, and gaming development skills. I am industry certified in both PC Repair and Networking and my coursework has been modelled in many technology classrooms in the state of Utah. Make the most of your time in my class by staying on-task and motivated. My goal is to have you leave my classes knowing you have learned more than you ever thought possible . . . Mrs. Linda Brown
