Keyboarding

Welcome to Mrs. Al Raishouni’s keyboarding class!

I am very excited to be working with you this semester on developing a very essential computer skill, touch typing, or keyboarding as it is called today. Below you will find my class syllabus. You will be expected to sign the hard copy of the syllabus I give you the first week of class.

Let’s get to work and have some fun!
