Welcome to Business and Information Technology!

If you want to learn more about using the Microsoft Office 2010 suite, you have come to the right place!  (NOTE:  Beginning with the class of 2017, ALL students will be required to have passed one industry certification or licensure examination in order to graduate.)

I love Microsoft products and enjoy sharing the knowledge that I have gained through my years of working with Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint with my students!  Whether you are in keyboarding or a more advanced class with me, you can bet that you will take away some new knowledge that will help to make your life easier when using these software programs.

In addition to learning the required material, you will also be required to take at least one Microsoft Office Specialist 2010 exam in the above software programs if you are enrolled in Design, Multimedia, & Web Technologies or Advanced Dual Enrollment Computer Information Systems.  These certification tests are industry recognized and my students are very lucky that each of these tests is given free-of-charge through our ability to use Carl Perkins Grant funding or funding granted by the Commonwealth of Virginia to pay for them. 

We are fortunate that the Business and Information Technology Department at Nottoway High School partnered with Certiport in 2007 to become a MOS Certified Testing Center.  Our high school was one of the first surrounding counties to do this and it has allowed our department to award over 200 certifications to our students to date.  We continue this testing each semester as a way to validate what our students have learned and to give them an industry recognized certification that can help them in obtaining jobs or in college life.

MOS 2010 continues the legacy of the Microsoft Office Specialist certification programs, the premier credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their skills and advance their careers. The credential enables individuals to tap the full features and functionality of the Microsoft Office 2010 system, resulting in increased academic and job performance, individual differentiation and personal confidence.
