Nebo has a remarkable team of keyboarding teachers each of whom is responsible for four elementary schools. Each one helps every fourth-grade student and every fifth-grade student develop a keyboarding skill that will help him or her be efficient and effective in today’s technology-based society. Nebo’srkeyboarding specialists are Randy Bartholomew, Deb Bigler, Kim Clyde, Haley Hales, Patty Holt, Lorraine Tuttle and April Williams. Nebo uses its own keyboarding materials – which were developed to meet the specific needs of Nebo’s keyboarding programs – to help students develop their keyboarding skills.
