Technology Staff Bio – Ms. MaryAnn Koliopoulos

Technology Instructor/Coach

I was born in San Francisco and raised in Daly City, and when little girls grouped together to play “house,” I played “school,” where I was the teacher and where this earliest memory became my chosen career later in life. I graduated from high school and worked in business to buy my own car and save for my own college fund. I graduated from San Francisco State University with Bachelor and Master Degrees in Business, and earned CTE teaching credentials in Child Development, Business, Technology, and a supplemental credential in Computer Science.

I believe it is vital that combining technology with English and math skills will help students succeed on the job, at school, and in their own personal life. As your children advance to each new grade level, it is my commitment to prepare students with the right foundation relevant to their daily lives and in support of their school-to-career desires. It is exciting to see the many written and artistic projects that your children’s grade level teachers develop each school year, and how wonderful it is to blend those technology skills into their grade level classwork. I have enjoyed helping teachers expand on their own technology skills to make efficient use of technology and for creating student-driven research and art projects.

Although your children are in elementary school, the school and career opportunities that await them place greater demand on skills in technology, research, and writing as well as skills such as diplomacy, verbal communication, and leadership of self and of others. It is my desire to help your children develop good learning and working habits and have fun too! (You can read more about technology standards on www.iste.org.) My goals for your children this school year are to update and develop a progressive technology curriculum that includes Keyboarding, Google Suite, Coding, and Leadership skills. Please do not hesitate to come to the computer lab when you pick up your child at the end of the day. It is always a pleasure to meet your entire family.
