Trent RobertsonMr. Trent Robertson
Email: trent@saintjohnsschool.net

Mr. Robertson started teaching at St. John’s in the fall of 2009. His time is also shared with Foley Public Schools as a Computer Applications teacher. In 2013, he earned a Master of Education degree along with an Online Teaching certificate from the College of St. Scholastica. In the fall of 2013, Mr. Robertson and his family moved to Foley. Shortly after the move, Snowball, a white German Shepherd, joined our family. He enjoys spending as much time with his family as possible—especially camping. As time permits, he loves to play racquetball, volleyball, and bean bags. He enjoys playing the following card games: cribbage, Phase 10, 500, and euchre.

About the Classroom

  • In grades K to 3, students will continue to reinforce computer skills from the previous year.  Coding skills have been introduced to the classroom by using Ozobots and a web-based application called Code.org. Utilizing the Typing.com program, keyboarding begins with correct posture and technique as well as hands-on practice with other word processing application.
  • In grades 4 to 6, students will also continue to build on their computer skills.  Students will utilize Typing.com to improve keyboarding skills as well as take timed typing tests. The sixth grade students continue to create their graduation video.
  • The above learning activities only describe a small portion of what will be happening in the computer lab this year.  As a best practice, content from the classroom will also be integrated into the computer curriculum as much as possible.
