It was very frustrating and disheartening and I reached a point
where I hated my job with an absolute passion.
Then in August last year I found an article about a
computer skills curriculum and called the number. The company's name was Knowledge Network
and a representative came to see me and what I heard really excited me. He then made an
appointment to see the Headmaster, who knew how I felt because of the times I had spent in
his office in frustration and anger.
After discussing the matter with the Governing Body, who
was also given a presentation, it was decided that Roosevelt High would become a Knowledge
Network Partner School. Each pupil is charged an extra minimal amount to have the benefit
of using this curriculum.
I have not looked back for a minute. There are still
frustrations involved with using machinery and no day will go by, when dealing with
children, that is problem free.
BUT teaching computer technology has become a pleasure
most of the time.
The pupils are challenged to produce something at whatever
level they are.
The support I receive from the Knowledge Network staff is
wonderful. Even when you phone with a question you are never made to feel uncomfortable
and the Knowledge Network staff help you quickly and efficiently. They are available all
The training provided by Knowledge Network is very good
I am amazed at what I have
learned from teaching the Knowledge Network Curriculum."
