Hello, I am Ms. Monge and I'm delighted to be teaching Business Education at Beville Middle School. Business classes are excellent electives for students to prepare for their future. It is my goal to develop students' understandings and skills necessary for long-term, future success. Career Investigation, Computer Solutions and Computer Applications are each valuable classes to our students as they progress on their academic track.
I look forward to sharing my experience and passion for business & information technology with our students. In my personal time, I enjoy golfing, kayaking, supporting the University of Maryland Women's Basketball team, and sharing time with my grandchildren & 3 dogs.
WHAT'S NEW IN CLASS THIS WEEK? February 27, 2017
Career Investigations - Career Investigation Classes finished a review of the Arts, A/V Technology & Communication Career Cluster & are beginning to work on Short & Long Term SMART Goals! Encourage them to "reach for the stars"!
Computer Solutions - We've recently tried our hands at being Cyber Specialists in PBS NOVA's Cyber Security Online Lab. Students were challenged to keep their digital lives safe, spoof cyber scams, learn the basics of coding & defended against cyber attacks. Students assumed the role of Chief Technology Officer of a start-up social network company that is the target of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. Students completed challenges to strengthen their cyber defenses and thwart their attackers!
Computer Applications - Applications class has been creating charts in EXCEL. So far they have created column, bar, pie & line charts! Next they will be moving on to formulas! Soon they will have 2 Microsoft Office Applications under their belts!
