Christy Westby-Gibson- Computer Specialist
Welcome to the Technology Lab at HES!!
My name is Christy Westby-Gibson and I will be your child's technology teacher this year. This will be my 5th year here at Highland. I am currently in my 2nd year teaching Technology at Highland and I love the experience of seeing the excitement when they learn something new on the computer.
My husband, Gerry and I have been married for 13 years and have two amazing boys. Massion is a 10th grader at Ridgeland High School and Hunter is in the 8th grade at Olde Towne Middle School. Both boys are very active in the school’s sports. We love being outdoors, traveling and spending time with family.
The computer lab is a fun place! We have adapted Learning.com into our technology lab to help us learn the proper keyboarding functions, internet safety and awareness, as well as learning the basics of other programs such as Word.
Every year we participate in a nationwide contest “Hour of Code”. In this competition your student will compete among other students across the nation coding.
In addition to the Computer Lab, I also run a Coding class held weekly.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever have any questions.
