Mrs. Colleen Feil
Hello Mavericks! Thank you visiting my page! As I enter my twenty-seventh year, I will be teaching Project Lead the Way Gateway to Technology, Audio Visual and Communications, and 6th grade math. I am also the Murphy Mavericks Robotics Team Coach.
I have taught in Richardson ISD and Plano ISD. In Plano, I have taught at Daffron Elementary and here at Murphy since it opened. I taught 6th and 7th grade math before taking on the challenge of GTT and AVAC.
As a Computer Technology Teacher at Murphy, it is my duty to ensure all students have a great and positive experience using Technology and follow the guidelines of Digital Citizenship. Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to meet that goal!
Gateway to Tecnology
In this hands-on course, students learn how technology is used in engineering to solve everyday problems. This math, science, engineering, and technology integrated program relates technology to student’s daily lives. Design and Modeling will introduce students to the design process and use that process to show how solid modeling has influenced their lives. Students will also explore the history and development of automation and robotics while learning about structures, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. This mathematics, science, engineering, and technology curriculum helps students develop and hone skills that enable them to enter high school with a foundation of the knowledge and skills necessary for success in pre-engineering. PLTW is a nationally recognized program that promotes pre-engineering courses at the middle and high school/senior high level. Students will receive high school credit and high school grade points.
Audio Visual and Communication
This course provides students the opportunity to create and manipulate computer graphics, learn how to edit video and audio, take on the role of a designer and use 3D solid modeling software to design and present ideas, and learn how to effectively use presentation software to communicate your ideas. While doing fun and engaging activities, you will also explore the skills needed for college and career readiness, learn about the labor market and develop skills for success in the workplace.
Sixth Grade Math
Sixth grade mathematics includes a study of rational numbers and the operations on rational numbers. It also concentrates on measurement and probability, with additional work on proportional reasoning and an introduction to algebraic concepts such as variables, tables, graphs, and symbols for representation.
