Welcome! I am glad that you are here. It is my goal to prepare you to enter college or the workplace with confidence and competency. Studying computer science is never stagnant. It is a dynamic, perpetually enriching process.
Computer programming is ubiquitous, diverse, and specialized.
Four critical skills in computer science are:
Learning is crucial to becoming a successful student; and to a long career in computer science because technology changes so quickly. Emphasizing the ability to clearly communicate ideas, coupled with listening to the ideas of others, is fundamental to being a successful learner and to building a successful career. The myth of the lone programmer locked in a dark cubicle is mostly just that, a myth. Collaboration, not isolation, is a key characteristic of successful students and effective leaders. Change happens every day, every moment, everywhere. As future higher education students and emerging professionals, we must learn to embrace change and honor it, even when change arrives with companions, fear and uncertainty.
Successful technology professionals are life-long learners and view learning as a perpetually enriching process. As you begin this semester, I implore you to embrace being a life-long learner, develop excellent collaboration and communication skills, and hone your adaptability to change.
I am thrilled that you are at Brock ISD. I hope that you will find satisfaction and happiness during your time here at Brock and in your future.
