Welcome to Mr. Flay's Computer and Careers Website
My Classroom Mission
The 21rst century student, as a result of their education, will be learning
consumers and producers, ethically responsible and contributing local and
global citizens. These self directed learners will be able to adapt to rapid
change and will be adept information managers, who will know how to gather,
evaluate, synthesize, and communicate information.
