My Classes

The mission of the Perkiomen Valley School District is to provide a rich academic and cultural learning environment that maximizes available resources to assure that all students grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally, attaining the skills necessary to become successful citizens. 

Intro To Business
Introduction to Business is a great course for anyone getting ready to enter the workforce.  We discuss the different types of businesses, marketing, business finances, diversity in business and much more!  Students do a lot of group work and independent work.  Students learn the parts of a business plan and work on putting together a business plan of their own.  They create a product or service, along with a logo and even commercial to advertise that product.  The presentation of your product is similar to "Shark Tank", the TV show, and the class will vote on who they would invest in!  

Business Applications
Business Applications teaches and reviews tools in Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint.  It allows for an opportunity to get certified in each one!  We also work on putting together a portfolio as we work our way through the course.  The portfolio includes your certification(s), a resume, cover letter, reference sheet, and some other activities we put together in class.  Students also practice their interview skills and learn common job interview questions and appropriate answers.
