Mrs. Kuhr, Computers

Welcome to Computers!

First, let me introduce myself.  I'm Amy Kuhr, the new Computer Teacher here at St. Vincent de Paul.  Before coming to SVdP, I was the technology coordinator for the Plattsmouth Community School District, where I worked with teachers and students incorprating technology into the curriculum.  I worked with grade levels Preschool-12th and in all subject areas.  I also taught a computer science and STEM class for 7th and 8th graders.  Before that I was the K-6 computer teacher for the Exira School District in Iowa.  I have a masters from Iowa State in Instructional Technology and a bachelors in elementary education with a minor in Educational Computing.  I am currently working on a second masters from UNO in Computer Science Education.  My focus will be on coding and programming, STEAM, being CyberSMART, keyboarding, and learning software and tools used on computers throughout the year.

I am excited to be here at SVdP.  Everyone has been so warm and welcoming.  I can't wait to get to know the students better.
