Welcome to the Business & Information Technology Dept. at John Long Middle School.   Included is general information on all courses taught and the student business organization, FBLA.

About Mrs. Mathias:  I have taught Business and Information Technology courses for 25 years. My undergraduate and graduate work were completed at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.  I enjoy teaching a variety of business topics and well as developing in students the skills necessary to prepare them for high school, and college or career readiness.  The area I am most passionate about is financial literacy, and because of this, have organized and operate the Reality Store, a financial literacy program for 8th graders, every spring.

Mission Statement:

Business and Information Technology provides courses to assist all students in becoming productive members of a diverse society.  It is the department philosophy to provide skills and opportunities for and about business to all students to prepare them to move on to the high school environment.  Multiple learning opportunities and fostering individual student needs and values will be utilized as students become knowledgeable and  life-long learners and contributors within the every-changing global society in which they live.
