Class Description:
My class is an EXCEL class of advanced learners in the heart of North Long Beach, CA.
We love to learn! My students are eager to participate in hands-on real world learning experiences. They love technology and we have limited resources to work with. We need access to the digital world to satisfy our curiosity about the world!
