Hello. My name is Tammy Wilkerson and this is my first year at Holy Family Catholic School, although it is far from my first year of teaching. I retired from the public school system last year after 29 years of teaching. I received a B.S. from the University of Mississippi in business education and a M.S.E. in Educational Theory and Practice from Arkansas State University.
My husband and I have been married 33 years and have 3 children. We enjoy traveling, hiking the Smoky Mountains, and attending Ole Miss Rebel sporting events.
In computer class this year, younger students will be working on identifying the location of the keys on the keyboard as well as obtaining reinforcement in content areas through educational programs. Older students will be learning touch typing, computer vocabulary, and digital responsibility. Eight graders will be earning a Carnegie unit towards graduation through the Technology Foundations curriculum.
I try to impress upon my students, friends, etc. the value of spending time outdoors. It's something I taught my own children as they were growing up. The benefits of getting away from electronics and the ever-increasing social media for young people, especially teenagers, is so beneficial in establishing their self worth.
