Getting Started...

Posted by Robert Griffith | 8:50 PM | 0 comments »

Hi Everybody!  I'm still working to figure out what software is available, which web sites we have access to on campus, what students' prior experience is, etc.  We will begin somewhat on the same page by getting set up with Gmail and Bogger and then classes will begin to "peel off" in different directions.  As the year continues, classes will begin getting much more focused on their individual material.

Thank you very much for your warm welcome and for your continued patience.

Welcome to Mr. Griffith's class!

I would just like to take a moment to introduce myself and to welcome you to my classes.  I am excited and proud to be a member of Kelseyville High School and look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.

My name is Robert Griffith.  I was born in Ukiah but happily call Kelseyville my home.  I am married with 4 children (2 sons and 2 daughters).  We have a dog (a great dane), a cat, a tortoise, a cockatiel, and some hermit crabs.

I have been using computers since I was 13 years old, but began actually working with them (as a lab aide at Mendocino College) back in 1988.  I began teaching computer science for Mendocino College in 1998 and then at Ukiah High School a few months later.  I have taught web design, graphic design, photo editing, multimedia, animation, 3D graphics, photography, office applications, business, 7th grade social studies, 8th grade U.S. History, and 11th grade U.S. History.  I have done professional web design, graphic design, photo editing, etc. 

As a teacher I have won the MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) Educator of the Year award, the Ukiah High School Distinguished Educator award, and others.  My hobbies include web design, graphic design, genealogy, and creating video tutorials for a variety of software applications.

I have worked in a variety of occupations throughout my life, but my absolute passion is teaching.  I actually collect books about teaching, teacher Valentines, antique teacher's certificates, etc.  It's what I absolutely love to do.
