Mr. Kochanek - Technology

Mr. Kochanek - Kindergarten 1969
 

Hello! Welcome to my homepage. My name is Mr. Kochanek, and I'm the technology teacher at SRS. I'm so excited to be here, and I hope to teach many new skills using the technology available to us.

I've been teaching for over 30 years, all in the Westfield Public School system. I've been a 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, resource room, and tech teacher at both Juniper Park School and Papermill School.  My goal is to help train our kids to be responsible tech users while they learn the MA Digital Literacy and Computer Science curriculum.  

I have many projects for your kids to create while they're with me in the computer lab!

            If you haven't done so already, please have your child bring in a pair of inexpensive headphones or earbuds (no mic required) to leave in his/her classroom. Over-the-head headphones work much better with K-1 students! Please try them on before they're sent to school. If you could place them in a Zip-loc type bag with your child's name and homeroom number clearly marked on it, that would be so helpful. Thank you!
