Computer Lab with Mr. Boehm
Mr. Boehm was born in New York but moved to Florida at a very young age and grew up close by in the city of Sunrise. He graduated from Mercer University in Georgia and attended Florida International University for graduate school. Mr. Boehm first got into teaching because he wanted to help students who were struggling with reading and math. For this reason, he became a special education teacher and even taught the learning club here at our school. He first got involved with computers in college. Even before Mr. Boehm became our computer lab teacher he always strived to include technology into his lessons. Mr. Boehm believes using technology is not only a great motivator for students, but preparing them to live in today's digital information age is a necessity.
Mr. Boehm has been teaching for over 25 years and has been involved in all aspects of computers in the schools.
