Preparing Students for the World of Business

Business Education
Keyboarding Technique

I am so glad my students took keyboarding. They key faster than I do. The worst part is that they tease me when I sit down to the computer. They check my posture and remind me to keep my eyes on the screen, not on my hands. I am happy they had the opportunity to take keyboarding. I hope all students will have the same chance to take this class.
-Gerie Miles, Parent
