My name is Nina Lucchi and I am the Director of Instructional Technology at Miami Country Day School. I teach 6th grade Computer Basics in the Middle School, and in the Upper School, Computer Applications and Desktop Publishing. I also coordinate the faculty technology inservice training.
In our 2 PC Labs, we encourage responsible use of the Internet, validation of websites for research papers and critical thinking. We try to integrate computer use Kindergarten through 12th grade. In the Upper School we offer classes in Programming and Advanced Placement Programming with C++, Applications with Microsoft Office '97, Desktop Publishing with Adobe PageMaker 6.5, and photo imaging with Adobe Photoshop 5.0.
Teacher training is also a priority at MCDS. Teachers are trained in Internet use, electronic gradebooks and e-mail. Eventually I would like every teacher at MCDS to post their own webpage.
I live in multicultural Miami, Florida. The diversity of cultures and languages make it a most interesting place to live.. not perfect, but boring!
The temperature often reaches 98°... but hey, it beats being up to the wahzoo in snow!!
Search engines are a great way to fine useful information on the Web. One of my favorites is Education World.

Oh, and my daughter would never forgive me if I didn't say...GO GATORS!
