Welcome to MCPS Distance Learning!
My virtual class will be very similar to my normal class. We will be mainly using GOOGLE CLASSROOM and Adobe Creative Cloud for your daily computer assignments. This is the first year we started using Creative Cloud, which gives the students free use while in my class to use the Adobe Software suite anywhere they can connect to the internet. We have had some problems with it this year but this is a great time to fine-tune it for home use. I am looking forward to learning with you about Distance Learning so that I can incorporate it better into my Lessons.
