Mrs. Strate

   Hi! My name is Mrs. Strate and I am so happy to be your computer teacher! I’m looking forward to a year full of learning, fun, and adventure!
   I started teaching computers at Birches in 2015.  I previously taught third grade for 10 years at Wedgwood.  I have a master's degree in teacher leadership with a certificate of graduate studies in educational technology.
   I am married and have two children, Ashley and Jimmy.  We love going to Wildwood, OBX, and riding bikes together.  We also have a cat named Harry and a dog named Leia!
   I can't wait to spend the school year getting to know you and sharing my passion for computers and technology!
